I took a second look at your page in Spanish.  "Butterflies found" is
translated into Spanish as "butterflies they found."  Try using "butterflies
one finds."  Also, you need to punctuate "...Photo of the Week it's
updated...."  Try "...Photo of the Week.  It is updated..."  Otherwise, that
phrase is totally unreadable in Spanish.
