Barred Yellow

This is just my third time to see this unusual Yellow (among the many Yellows!). The Barred Yellow, Eurema daira (linked to my gallery) is found from Argentina north to the deep south of the U.S. It’s uniqueness is the brown, orange & yellow bars on the top of wings. The side view is similar to many Whites & Yellows. I’ve seen it twice here in Atenas and once at Arenal Observatory (where I’m headed tomorrow). See photos from other countries including the U.S. at butterfliesandmoths.

¡Pura Vida!

Personal Note: Tomorrow morning my transportation service will take me to Arenal Volcano National Park and a favorite Arenal Observatory Lodge where I will spend the week photographing nature of many kinds! It is one of my top 3 or 4 favorite places to be! 🙂 Tomorrow morning I will have a post on moving from my little personal jungle to the big jungle and an intro to Arenal for those who’ve never been or read my blog posts and photo books on Arenal.

    1. Thanks Bonnie! I always do and places like I’m going to tomorrow are a major reason I moved here. I hope you and Tom are well and happy.

    1. Oh, you will hear about it! Like every day in the blog for the next two weeks or so! 🙂 Arenal Observatory is like my second or third best place for both birds and butterflies, plus great trails and a beautiful waterfall. And by going in May I will get sunsets over lake Arenal! Much of the year the sun sets behind some mountains which doesn’t make the best photos. 🙂

    1. ¡Gracias Gordona! And I have a wonderful time everywhere I am in Costa Rica! 🙂 But this place is a cut above many of the others, for lots of reasons. You will see some of them in my daily blog reports from there which I will write each afternoon or evening. Pura vida!
