butterfly house (or pictures for a gray day)

my aunt and i visited the butterfly house on a cool grey day.
below is a scuplture by artist Bob Cassilly. It is 28 feet tall one of the blue morpho butterfly; there are 3000 of them in the butterfly house and they don't ever seem to land anywhere. I just got lucky with this shot. I was taking so many pictures my camera was hot to the touch
the picture below was taken right after we entered the conservatory; my lens was foggy with the difference in temperture between a cool outside and a tropical forest humidity inside
the butterfly below wings' look like owls eyes when the wings are closed
a waterfall inside the conservatory
