NATURE ON DISPLAY
One of my favorite exhibits was the butterfly rainforest. It was so beautiful and fascinating to see such beautiful creatures interacting in their habitat. They were completely unbothered by the people walking around, so long as we did not reach to touch them or disrupt their routines. It had rained the day I went to the museum, so the butterflies were a bit less active. They perched upon plant leaves while they waited for their wings to dry so that they could take flight once more. The floral scenery of the butterfly exhibit (as pictured above) is extraordinary and caught my attention immediately. I took the time to sit down on one of the benches and remained still, hoping that I would attract one of the butterflies as advised by one of the exhibit's supervisors. I sat there for what must have been 3 minutes until one of them finally flew over and rested on my knee. I did not move or touch it, I remained still, and soon enough more followed. Still I did not budge, I simply observed because it was truly a magnificent feeling to have become incorporated into their habitat and coexist among them.
