Key West Butterfly Conservatory, Part 2

Time for more pictures from the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory.

The Atlas Moth is one of the largest moths in the world, with a wingspan of 10 inches. We saw a single specimen in the observatory and it was impressive.

We also enjoyed many other butterflies.

Teri spotted this well-camouflaged butterfly. It looked exactly like a dead leaf, but upon close inspection you can see the legs and antennae. It looks like one of the wings didn't form correctly on this one. 

And a few more before I go...
