Natural Moments
On the cusp of retirement, I set up this blog in March 2011 as a way of sharing some thoughts and photographs  from my daily wanderings about the wilds of Albuquerque and occasionally other places. Birding, butterflies, other nature photography, and travel to other parts of the world in pursuit of same are high on my list of favorite things to do.

Turquoise-spotted Navy Eighty-eight butterfly (Diaethria astala astala)

A treat for me while climbing to the top of the 140' Caana pyramid was spotting a new (for me) species of "88" butterfly, the Turquoise-spotted Navy Eighty-eight, with the faint number-like markings on the outer wings and that thin red rim.

It would occasionally spread those wings to show that turquoise coloring on the upper wing.
