Thanks so much, Harmeet and Tiia! I snapped this photo yesterday while visiting the butterfly house. The butterfly landed on someone’s fact sheet and gave me the opportunity to take this photo. The butterfly wings are so beautifully blue inside, while covered with patterns and mostly brown from outside, and it was really hard for me to catch him sitting anywhere.
