As Leopold says that we need to "love, respect, and admire" the land to be considered members of the "biotic community" rather than "conquers of the land". I had the opportunity to experience nature in the way Leopold talked about in the Butterfly Rainforest. Walking through the lush greenery of the rainforest surrounded by so many different butterflies was very captivating. Being surrounded by all of the plant life and butterflies, it really made me feel like I was in a real rainforest. I keep getting the sense that there were so may other butterflies all over but spotting them was somewhat difficult. There were several butterflies right in front of me that I spotted on rocks after minutes of searching, but at first glance they almost blend in to there surroundings. Other people walking through the exhibit all seemed to be in good spirits each searching for hidden butterflies among the lush plant life. Despite not being able to touch much of anything outside you were still able to take in the beauty that nature has to offer. From my experience in the museums butterfly exhibit I found myself appreciating all of what nature has to offer and the endless bounds of its capabilities.
