Backyard Butterfly Photography - Butterfly House



"If nothing ever changed there would be no butterflies" - Unknown

While I won't be able to photography butterflies this winter, I will be able to provide habitat to attract more butterflies this spring.   I am working on a couple of butterfly houses that I will post pictures of soon.   Garden Gate Magazine offers plans for the butterfly house on their website.  The house gives butterflies a resting place or protection if a storm passed through.  I stained my boxes, but many people believe that by painting them a bright yellow, pink, red, etc that more butterflies will be attracted.   You also need to install bark to the inside so the butterfly feels like it is resting on a log.

Humor for the day - Requesting a three day pass


An Israeli soldier who just enlisted asked the Commanding Officer for a 3-day pass.
The CO says "Are you crazy? You just join the Israeli army, and you already want a 3-day pass? You must do something spectacular for that recognition!"
So the soldier comes back a day later in an Arab tank!
The CO was so impressed, he asked "How did you do it?"
"Well, I jumped in a tank, and went toward the border with the Arabs. I approached the border, and saw an Arab tank. I put my white flag up, the Arab tank put his white flag up. I said to the Arab soldier, "Do you want to get a three-day pass? So we exchanged tanks!"
