    Ah, the misinformed - it is obviously a lovely butterfly, emerging from it's chrysalis and spreading it's wings. A Mendenhall? or Papilio?

    Diane,

    you're so right. The beautiful butterfly is a Kalihi.

    "Mutant Critter Queen" alias the Dragon Butterfly, and her king, the "Nautilus Hoya".

    Wow! Pavel sure does have a mutant queen! (I would have guessed Mariposa on the Psychopsis, but that's Kalihi back-crossed to its papilio parent, so not too far off.)

    I've been teaching a "Writing Fantasy" workshop at a local arts camp to kids from 9-14 for the last two weeks, and I can't even tell you the descriptive terms for Pavel's flowers that are elbowing to be voiced - those kids have polluted my brain! Aaaaiiiiiii!

    Yikes - I guess my brain was beamed up somewhere along the way. The mutant queen is Tami's! Very mutant. I'll stop there. Better for the rest of you.
