Sensational Butterflies is an exhibition of living butterflies from all over the planet in all stages of development, from egg to imago. Shown here is a magnificent Blue Morpho Butterfly (Morpho peleides) on a Girl's Face. It hails from South America and is one of the largest species of butterflies in the world.
