One of the last 1st gen. map butterflies I saw in 2019 (last one I took was may 25)

Butterflies are nature's angels, they remind us what a gift it is to be alive.

Map, Araschnia levana, karttaperhonen, Finland.

 

Map butterfly spring generation is mostly orange and summer generation mostly black. At first scientists thought they are different species because of the different colorations. Later it was found out that day length during development affects the coloration.

 

I like the fact it was named "map" as the underside of wings looks like a street map.

Rondeau Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada, August 19, 2020.

Saw this small map turtle at the edge of the road while out for my bike ride.

I moved it, in the directions it was going, off the pavement.

It was about 2" long.

Directly behind a waterfall, lumps of ice has formed something that resembles an unfolded map of the world. At least with some imagination. Do you see it too?

The plane which I was on flew into Lima due to bad weather at it's original destination, Iquitos...

From there, a later plane was taken to Iquitos and the plan was to join a boat a little down river from there....( travelling down to it by canoe with small motor ). It is a recent realisation that I had travelled by plane or boat from the West Coast to the East, arriving a little south of the marked route into Belem and then up the coast to French Guiana and the Surinam border.......

I will be away fro Flickr untill the end of the month. I am away with my family. then driving through Germany to visit a few places. see yu all when I return.

Photographed near Gdow in Poland.

Reminiscing by looking at a Flickr map... What wonderful stories this map of lower Manhattan and its surroundings brings back to me...

I really need the next wider view to really cover my beginnings. I lived, worked, or studied in all the five boroughs of New York City: Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and The Bronx. This map shows only small parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.

A map I drew for a story I'm writing. I thought adding the real compass made it more interesting.
