Vallarta Botanical Gardens Invites You to Experience October Butterfly Month

Bob Price - Vallarta Botanical Gardens

October 8, 2016

Dear Friends of the Garden,

Few other miracles of nature complement the delicate and ephemeral beauty of flowers as do butterflies.

Here at the Vallarta Botanical Garden, October is our peak month for butterfly observation and enjoyment and is when we find them in greater abundance and diversity than any other time of the year.

This magical moment at the tail end of the rainy season is when our forests are still lush and humid yet without the threat of torrential rains upon fragile butterfly wings.

We hope you make it up here to take in this spectacle firsthand. From the ubiquitous monarchs and swallowtails to strictly tropical inhabitants with their often bizarre combinations of color and patterns, there is no shortage of these marvelous jewels of the insect world flitting across the landscape.

Personal favorites are the more seldom seen giant white morpho “guardian angel” butterflies that seem to effortlessly float through the forests.

Maybe you’ll be inspired to outfit your own home garden into a butterfly paradise. If so, think about planting an attractive assortment of color and a constant new crop of flowering plants. Another helpful pointer is to install butterfly “puddlers” – shallowly buried containers (plastic ones are the least expensive and most durable) filled with sand that is kept damp. Butterflies frequent these much more than bird feeders, which often attract their most dangerous of avian predators.

Whenever we take the time to care for nature, the rewards that come back to us are always much greater than the energies we expend.

Warmest regards from the Garden,
Bob Price, Founder and Curator, VBG
