Flutterbye Nose Boop!

Ever seen a Flutterbye Nose Boop before? Vewwy, VEWWY Rare. Normally only seen in the deepest darkest jungles of Africa, the Congo, you know- places from the National Geographic.


“We rescued several caterpillars from marauding wasps, releasing them when they grew to butterflies. This one, named ‘Buttercup,’ decided to stick around on my shirt for a long time, giving my daughter a hug on the nose along the way, before we got her to find a plant she liked.” -Justin S.



  1. So the urge to beep noses is not just a human thing. Good to know.

    What Flutterbye was saying in pic#1:
    “Psst! Wanna know a secret? When I flap my wings, I can make it rain in Beijing!”
