Okay Steph, I'm taking all the butterflies. Just beautiful.

Joan, glad you are enjoying the pictures. The wonder and awe of nature all around me often stop me in my tracks. All I can say then is "Wow".

The Clouded Leopard's Secret..."

"Clouded leopards have the largest canine teeth relative to their body size of all large cats.  I swiped this picture
without permission from Flikr.  The excellent photo was taken by a guy that goes by the handle of Nikographer." 
Tony, I have never heard of such a creature; it has an interesting story as written "in a book for children written by Karen Povey of the Clouded Leopard Project and illustrated by Heather Hudson."
Thanks so much.
