Lots of butterflies at Iguazu Cataratas, Argentina. One was hanging out on the prop lf TBM N850SJ (easily recognizable by the dental work). I then hung around for a couple minutes waiting for her to open her wings. She didn't dissappoint!

Ma, found a place to park while waiting for the flight plan, etc, etc.

Pilots, examining the stamps on their flight plans. Or, talking about weather, or routing or approach plates.

Most distressing; the PFD on my side kept losing wind and heading information.
