Colorful butterflies on exhibit, pictures taken by Douglas Santos
The exhibition that I found the prettiest has to have been the bright blue butterflies that you saw when you exited the butterfly rainforest. It is a collection of all-blue butterflies that light up when you look at them. I think humans in general are attracted to the idea of things being intense and concentrated in this modern world. No matter where you go, or where you live, you always want to be the brightest you can possibly be, but in actuality, this is what gets you spotted. The butterflies that survive are the ones that are able to disguise themselves in the wild, and not be spotted by predators. I think finding a balance between shining bright and being camouflaged is vital in mental health, and something that I try to work more on as a person.
