Last weekend I went to a butterfly exhibition. I didn’t have many expectations before I went there and I was surprised that we were allowed to touch the butterflies.
If you want to invite a butterfly to crawl on your hand, you should gently touch its front legs. Needless to say, I wasn’t very graceful doing this. I was a little scared by the butterflies (stupid, I know) and I was afraid that I may hurt them, so I let them stay wherever they want. At least I was able to take a few photos.
The whole experience was amazing; I just felt a little sad because some of the butterflies have a really short lifespan. There is a certain type that doesn’t have a digestive system and lives just a couple of days. They only live to lay eggs and then they die. That’s their whole life…
There were pupas too, but you are not allowed to touch them.
