Butterfly room

I went to an event last week at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Musem and spent most of my evening oohing and ahhing at the over 1,000 butterflies in the Butterfly Room.  Here are a few snap shots of my favorites...
this leaf is really a butterfly!

This little guy was pretty hyper, he finally stopped fluttering around so I could get a quick picture. Now I see he has freakishly long legs.

I love the pattern on the wings of this one. 

This is the largest butterfly in the world.  It will only live for 5-6 days, because it looses its mouth during metamorphosis.
