They were DELICIOUS.

  1. Aw. did u take all those? I love me some Flying colors, they are my favorite local wild creature..thanks m’dearest Zombilicious. 😉

    For img 0273, I’m sticking with Zebra Heliconian, Heliconius charitonius and Hecale Longwings, Heliconius hecale. (The Zebra is the zebra-looking one.)

    Img 0280 I’m calling Peleides Blue Morpho, Morpho peleides.

    Img 0268, Owl Butterfly, Caligo memnon.

    More tomorrow, if I live, he typed. Optimistically.

  3. It’s like catnip for thunder….

  4. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    Julia Heliconian, Dryas iulia, for img 0270, I guess.

  5. M. Bouffant says:

    DELICIOUS, sure, but you gotta get a lot of ’em to fill you up.

  6. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    I’ll go with Doris Longwing, Heliconius doris for Img 0265.

  7. Jennifer says:

    Yeah, they’re all thunder-bait.

  8. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    It was windy as heck today, but I got some flutterby pics of me own…

  9. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    Img 0270: ORANGE JULIUS!

    Err, Orange Julia, Julia Heliconian, Dryas iulia.

  10. Jennifer says:

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus? They have brown, curly wings, right?

  11. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    I’ve almost got my butterfly post ready, but I’m wracked by doubt.


    They look the same! And the helpful identifying trick: “The silver mark on the back of the lower wings of the comma looks like a comma, while the Question Mark’s looks like a question mark” isn’t nearly as helpful as it sounds.

  12. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:


  13. I have no idea what you are talking about.

  14. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    That’s o.k. zrm, I’m not sure either.

    I’m just gonna call ’em Eastern Commas.

  15. How about MODERATION IN DEFENSE …[ lots of irrelevant text and more yelling of what are apparently butterfly-related nonsense words, along with OUTLAWED TRIGGER WORDS. Hence the editorial inserts. Also, check the URL link in the commenter’s name. PBPBPBBPBPBPBPBPBPTTTHHHH] …..


  16. Big Bad Bald Bastard says:

    It’s like a Whitman’s sampler of lepidoptera!

  17. herr doktor bimler says:

    I maintain that questions about flutterby punctuation marks are perfectly relevant.
    Also B^4 does not recognise lyrics from Heaven Forbid and I recommend that you ban him.

  18. He’s always been kind of sketchy character, hdb.

  19. To be fair, however, they did release more than one album, and were played on more than BBBB’s local college radio station.

  20. mikey says:

    Do any of you have any Ocelot pictures?

  21. Holy crap, 275 is nearly as scary as Mothra.

  22. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    So has it been written.

    So has it been done.

  23. herr doktor bimler says:


  24. Silent Mike says:

    Moths count, right? Mothra!

  25. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    Moths are notorious for their counting skills.

  26. ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© says:

    Moths make the Counting Crows jealous.

  27. herr doktor bimler says:

    Counting and spelling!

  28. mikey says:

    Ok, I get the whole obscure band thing round these parts, but I’m calling bullshit.

    There ain’t no band called “Spelling Crows”….

  29. Von says:

    Why is Thunda putting his pictures up over here? I has confused…..

  30. I am trying to attract the vast butterfly fanatic site traffic, or at least a Von comment more than once every two weeks….

  31. […] speaks zombie rotten mcdona… on Flying ColoursVon on Flying Coloursmikey on Flying Coloursherr doktor bimler on […]

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
