Gold Butterfly

Butterflies are abundant in Costa Rica, many of them  large and colorful.  The indigenous cultures centuries ago evidently admired the butterflies as well, as reflected by this specimens in the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum in San Jose.

This week we have photos from the Galapagos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

One has to admire the beauty of a butterfly.

I've never seen so many butterflies as I saw in Costa Rica. Didn't see a gold one. This is lovely!

This is a very stylized butterfly.

For some reason this makes me think of the old heavy metal band Iron Butterfly. The version you are showing is much more pleasant.
