Museum of Natural History Butterfly Exhibit

This was probably one of the highlights for me - going into the live butterfly exhibit. They had over 200 butterflies flying around in this super humid exhibit. One of the larger butterflies landed on my arm, it was so amazing. After it flew off me, it landed on DH's back. When it opened its wings, it was a bright vibrant blue.

These guys were mating the whole time we were in there. Apparently they don't put plants in the exhibit where the butterflies like to lay their eggs, because they don't want the caterpillars in there, so they must take the butterflies out to lay their eggs elsewhere.

Pin It!
