Flutterbies

There is a local Butterfly Garden here. In an effort to preserve the forests, they encourage local farmers to collect the chrysalises of butterflies native to the area. The farmers then sell the pupas to the Butterfly Garden where visitors pay an admission fee to see the butterflies. The farmers make money, the forest is preserved, and I get to see pretty butterflies. Everyone wins.
