Butterfly: Bigger than Two Palms

After the termite attack (see below) it's time to show other fascinating facets of nature. One day nature surprised us with a giant butterfly in our garden in Alabang. The beauty was bigger than two palms and stayed with us for 6 hours.

Too bad, butterflies rarely come again …..

Photos from Alabang (south of Manila), Philippines (2002).
