This is a quickie post from an exhibit at the Museum of Natural History. Being gigantic nerds, that place was pretty much our mecca.
There was a live butterfly exhibit in a small enclosed area. The interior of the butterfly room was roughly 400 degrees and 200% humidity.
It made me homesick.. just like the oppressive heat of Southern summers!
On the inside, several species of butterflies flutter around on plants and dishes of food. They’ll even land on you if you stand still long enough.
Before you leave, you have to go through a “decontamination” airlock, where you’re checked for any lingering flutterbies that may still be attached to your hair or clothing. Pretty cool!
