(...чи Хансакеры в Херсоне?)Stories and photos from the daily life of "the Russian Hunsuckers". . . in Ukraine!
Gorgeous butterfly! How big is it? Love you....
Wikipedia says 60-80 mm, which would be roughly 2-3 inches, right? Did you and Dad notice what the article says that the caterpillar food plant is? :-)
Wow. Beautiful shot. Was that done with Aunt Mary Dru's camera? I found myself wishing you and Leetra were little girls again. Your mother and I have enrolled in a bee keeping workshop. We are looking into the possibility of keeping bees in the backyard. How much more fun this would have been with you and Leetra here. I keep remembering the building of the water lily ponds. What fun we had!BTW: I am digging the hole for number four. The timber in the hex pond is deteriorating. I'll send pictures when it is finished. I still have a Panama Pacific lily descended from the original plant.2nd BTW: The man doing the workshop was very interested in bee keeping in Ukraine. He wanted to know if you might be interested in keeping a hive.Much love from Dad, Grandda, or Space Potato (take your pick)
>> Did you and Dad notice what the article says that the caterpillar food plant is? :-)I just read the article. You have discovered another pipevine eating swallowtail without tails. I knew that the Polydamas swallowtail was the only swallowtail in Florida without tails, but now I'm wondering if the only tail-challenged swallowtails are Aristolochia eaters.
wow, what a great picture!
Beautiful! And, wouldn't that be cool, if you could be beekeepers in Ukraine? Lots of work, but your own honey!! Love to all! Julie/Mom/Baba Julie (take your pick (: )
Oh, I forgot to answer about bees. Our dacha neighbor already keeps bees. (Remember the photo of Jaan peeking over at them?) That's probably enough for one little area! I remember at our dacha in Russia the volume of the bird songs was the first thing we noticed when we went out there. Here it's the buzzing of bees.And, yes, the photo here is from Aunt Mary Dru's wonderful camera!
Hello Phyllis,Thanks for stopping by my blog :-) Yep, our kids are really close: mine were born Sept. 2003, July 2005, and Dec. 2007. I love the way my little one plays with the older ones now--she is convinced she can and should do everything they do!
