Butterfly at Bowring Park

Inspired by a group of images taken by Karen whose photography I admire, I ventured to the Bowring Park greenhouse to capture the butterflies brought to St. John's from the Deer Lake Insectarium. Apparently , the entire population of St. John's ( 150,000) had the same idea and we were packed like sardines in a hot tropical environment. I snapped a few shots and fled !

Identification of this beautiful creature would be much appreciated.

Land' s End - Baja California Peninsula, Mexico

I have just returned from a 23 day vacation in South America and Pacific Mexico and hope to resume posting my Newfoundland images soon. Meanwhile, here is a photo of El Arco, a magnificent natural rock formation at Land’s End in Cabos San Lucas, Mexico at the tip of the Baja California peninsula. Cape Spear on the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland has also been called Land's End and has the same rugged beauty.
