The keepers at Butterfly Wonderland kept adding cut up fresh fruit to several bowls placed around the atrium area and that drew many butterflies trying to get a taste. Most of these butterflies are a species called Blue Morpho. That one in the center is showing off his blue inside the wings that are brown and spotted on the outside. The one to the right with the hints of green is called Pathenos Sylvia.
The guide they give you lists 36 different butterflies in it but of all the butterflies I photographed, only two were actually in that guide. I did a lot of searching on the internet to find the names of others (such as that Pathenos Sylvia above) and I'm still looking for some of them.
