While my husband and I were in Aruba celebrating our 20th anniversary we decided to visit the Butterfly Farm. The Butterfly Farm was such a calming place to observe such beautiful creatures. It was hard to photograph these fluttering butterflies but I was able to get a few decent pictures.

My husband was able to get many of the butterflies to crawl up on him using nectar. I was not so lucky.
This is actually not a butterfly but an Atlas moth. (Also known as the Snake Head Moth)The picture does not do it justice. It is actually about 10 inches wide. If you look closely at the wings it looks like a face of a snake. This moth has no mouth so it lives for about a week.
The next two pictures are butterflies that I loved but because they were flying around I was unable to take a picture. These are pictures I took of them that were framed in a case and displayed on the wall of the gift shop.
