Weekly Photo – Butterflies at the Rotterdam Zoo

After the blogging conference we attended, Andy and I took a two day tour of Rotterdam. One of the first places we went to was the Rotterdam Zoo. The weather wasn’t so great, a bit cold and rainy for May, so we were happy to check out the new Amazon area which was kept warm and balmy. There were butterflies flying around the whole area and several of them, like these, eating fruit. We learned while we were there that the butterflies are specially flown in from Costa Rica as pupae, and then they mature after arriving at the zoo.
