Butterflies Go Free?

(Golden helicon.)

Photos from the "Butterflies Go Free" exhibition, continued.

There were numerous signs warning us to not touch the butterflies, but with so many visitors in the greenhouse, it felt like we were intruding the butterflies' space. I worried that I would unintentionally step on a butterfly, or similarly crush it. Thankfully that didn't happen, but a lot of the butterflies looked clearly worse for wear.
