Butterfly Display at the Museum of Natural History

When I visited the Museum of Natural history last week they had a butterfly room setup and some displays of Butterflies so it gave me a chance to get some shots for Butterfly day hosted by @whatisnew and that's what I will share today.

I discovered a room set up to host and show butterflies is called a lepidopterarium, and I hope I spelled it right, it was cool seeing all the butterflies but I didn't get many shots with my camera, as to have it set up to suit the butterflies it needed to be very warm and moist, which fogged up the lens of my camera, so I only took a couple of shots with my camera which I will share, but I did take quite a few with my cell phone which I may use for another post in the future.

Let me start with a shot of a live Butterfly that was in the lepidopterarium ( its a new word so I had to slip it in a second time LOL)

Not the best of shots I know but literally I had to wipe off the lens and try and get a shot quickly before it fogged up again, plus my glasses were misty as well making it challenging and they moved so quickly from spot to spot, but i wanted to join this challenge :)

Now outside the butterfly room was some displays of Butterflies, the light wasn't great but I wanted to share some shots of them, starting with these ones with the lovely blues.

And one last shot of a live butterfly, I tooka few more withmy camera but they were too fogged up to be usable, and I gave up on using the camera in the room and took shots withmy cellphone which I will share sometime

I like butterflies, they indicate that the place is clean and they are just like flying flowers too. :D

Yes I do agree with you

Butterflies started to interest me when working with an associate during 1990's early 2000's, our then Financial Manager was a Lepidopterist with an amazing collection. Having traveled throughout Africa carefully labeling each in his collection.

Stunned by his extensive knowledge and passion I had the privilege of visiting his home while his wife talked of the travels and seeing the gorilla's in the wild up North (in itself super exiting and interesting), he quietly explained so much about this hobby of many years.

I believe his collection is now safely in the hands of Lepidopterists’ Society of Africa where collections such as his are now being curated.

WOW what an interesting story and thanks for sharing :)

So. Another testimonial that the Met is somewhere near the coolest place on earth!

Those are just beautiful beyond all words. Seriously, thanks for sharing them!

Ohh yeah I do love the Met and was glad I made time ot visit it again, it is my favorite of the useums here without a doubt

We have a butterfly house near where I live, but I haven't been to it in years. It is one of those things that once you see it you kind of have seen it. I wasn't as into photography then as I am now, so I can see how it might be a good idea to check back! Nice shots!

I do love butterfly houses i should find where some are near here and visit them again

Thanks again

Nice photos but that is normal for you. But really cool to feature butterflies today.

Thanks I try to mix it up :)

WOW!!! What an amazing collection of butterflies on display! Absolutely beautiful! No words needed to be said but I did get a laugh about your glasses and camera lens. LOL! And the live butterflies are stunning too with leaves that look like they were made just for them. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop at this room and sharing your photos with us. This was definitely the highlight of my day, week, month, year! And thanks for using #butterflyday tag @tattoodjay! : )

When I got to the Museum and saw they had this as an added option I had to do it, I got some OK shots with my phone for future posts ;)

I am thrilled that you did and I am looking forward to the other photos in the future. :)

Butterflies! Wow! I had no idea they had life ones in the museum. In Toronto they have only those in frames. I cannot imagine how do they keep them alive tin that lepidopterarium, but I understand the lifting is inefficient there for photography. Nevertheless, you did a wonderful job. Truly amazing how many types of butterflies is there 🦋😊🦋

They dont normally, this was a short term exhibit I believe but it was so cool to see :)

Ohh they had such a good collection of them in there was so cool to experienc I must say

Oh I see! Well you were very lucky then. I actually heard of lepidopterariums before, but I didn't know the proper name. Now I just Goggled if there is one nearby and I found it, so I have to convince my daughter to go there next year: https://www.niagaraparks.com/visit/attractions/butterfly-conservatory/

That one looks so cool I hope you can visit it ;)

Those butterfly displays beautiful! My kids and I love looking for butterflies when we are outside to see the many colors and designs on them.

Thanks, I will share some butterfly shots again next week taken with my phone, it was easier in the Butterfly house where they weren't flying around so much LOL, they tend to tease me outdoors and keep flying away just as I am about to get a shot LOL

Lol typical butterflies 😂
