A tour of the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory was out of this world.  The Conservatory was a gem of tropical plants and flowers with hundreds of rare butterflies.

The Malay Lacewing is from Malaysia (Cethosia hypsea).


This one is a Idea leuconoe or rice paper from Malaysia.


This beauty is a  heliconius ismenius or Longwing from Costa Rico.
