guam black butterflies

Creatures of Guam: Butterflies!

I used to love chasing butterflies when I was a little kid in Oregon. They were usually very small, yellow, maybe they were actually moths. I thought they were so pretty. In Guam, I don’t need to chase butterflies because they seem to be everywhere and will land on me if I’m still. I had never seen black butterflies until I moved here. It sort of feels magical when you walk through an area that hasn’t has been walked through in awhile, and tons of butterflies flutter around you.
