Butterfly eggs

Butterfly eggs
All three photos posted this morning were taken at the Calgary Zoo yesterday afternoon, 6 October 2015. The west entrance to the Zoo will be closed from 13 October till April 2016, so I did want to get in another visit before then. I don't like the drive home on Deerfoot Trail from the north entrance, so tend not to go to the Zoo all winter. "Calgary's infamous freeway has taken the dubious top spot when it comes to this city's most dangerous place to drive." From the Calgary Sun.

The forecast was for sun with some cloud, but it turned out to be overcast the whole afternoon and most of my photos, especially those taken indoors, came out blurry. I always find that sunshine is needed in the ENMAX Conservatory in order to get any decent photos. The butterfly room is winding down for the season - only a few left, mostly the same handful of species. It was so hot and humid in there yesterday, so it's just as well that there weren't many butterflies to try and photograph. Just as I was about to leave the room, I happened to notice a few specks of white on a distant leaf of a tropical plant. When I zoomed in, I saw that they were butterfly eggs. Wish I could have got closer, as these are quite attractive, with their ridged pattern, when seen close up. I wonder if they are Owl Butterfly eggs.
