|Owl Butterfly (Caligo Memnon)|
Actually the name 'Pavilion' sounds too blown-up, it was rather a room with flying butterflies. There were not many of them at least alive, owl butterflies were in abundance. Many species were seen under the glass, available for sale, from $10 to $65 per one butterfly:
We were on a tight budget and we are not actually butterfly collectors having a wall in the house covered with dried moths so we simply enjoyed viewing, holding and catching them.
What I also liked are the butterfly pupas. We haven't seen caterpillars there or how they develop into tender beautiful creatures but there were lots of various empty pupas (or a cocoon, capsule, folicie - don't know the right word) and some new-born butterflies:
