This is my last post of butterfly photos that I took at the Sensational Butterflies exhibit at the Natural History Museum.
At the centre of the butterfly garden was a flower shaped table with fruit halves for the butterflies to feed from. This meant there were some nice still butterflies to grab some pictures of.
This butterfly is sucking up some bananary goodness, check out it’s proboscis (tongue)!
This pretty little thing looks like it’s really digging that orange, it looks like it’s dived right in!
From what I remember, the table had mostly oranges, bananas, pineapples, and a few limes. It was very colourful.
The butterflies took advantage of the free treat, I never saw the table empty of them.
This delicate looking butterfly never stopped moving. Even as it was feeding it’s wings were flapping, it reminded me of hummingbirds. I have a short clip of this HERE.
I believe this is the blue morpho, it’s certainly big and blue!
You can see blue morphos emerging from their chrysalis’ on the museum website HERE
