Nature on Display: Upon walking into the Butterfly Rainforest exhibit, I noticed a tall open spaced room filled with framed butterflies from the ground to the ceiling. The vast amount of butterfly diversity was very striking to me and captured my attention right away. I had no idea how complex and diverse such a small insect can be. The part of the exhibit I found really intriguing was the color patterns section. In the pictures above, it displayed the bright, shiny, blue characteristic a butterfly could have. In addition to all the different colors and patterns, I read how they serve as a variety of different purposes. For example, bright colors give warnings to predators, dull colors help blend into their surroundings to hide, patterns could resemble the attraction in finding a mate, and how the darker the color, the warmer the body. From this medium design of framing butterflies from top to bottom, I really understood the strong emphasizes on the grand diversity of this species. In addition, I really enjoyed the videos of butterflies (introduction page) because I felt like I could actually feel their presence and view how they act.
