This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Natural."
I love to visit the Magic Wings Butterfly House at the NC Museum of Life and Science. It's a large conservatory that recreates the natural habitat of various tropical flora and fauna. It's especially fun to visit in the winter because it's toasty warm in there, and it's nice to see so much green when everything outside is brown. Here are a few shots from a recent visit:
Not sure what kind of butterfly this is, but he was very cooperative about posing~
This very cool plant is called a Chenille or Red Hot Cat's Tail. It's native to New Guinea and Maylaysia~
This is a malachite butterfly hanging upside-down. These are native to South America. What a beautiful creature!
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!
