|Glasswing, Greta oto|
Our first stop was the Butterfly Farm in Stratford - the conference was 20 minutes away. It is worth a visit if you find yourself there - very well laid out - lots of glasswing butterflies for the Captain to photograph- hatching pens, ponds with large carp (fat on their diet of tropical butterfly?), and flying flowers everywhere. Plus they had a herd of darling little quail chicks running in and out of the greenery. And there were some parakeets flying round, The noise they were making took me back to my expat days.

But then he brought a lovely blingy silver butterfly bracelet for me to dazzle all the delegates at the Convention with.
