Don't know what flavor this critter is, so if you do, please educate me. Just thought it was very pretty.
The Westminster Butterfly Pavilion combines science education with interactive fun to teach visitors about invertebrates and conservation. There are five immersive exhibits, including our rainforest filled with 1,600 free-flying tropical butterflies, provide a year-round, unforgettable experience. Visitors can get up close and personal with live animals, enjoy daily educational programs, explore the wonder of the outdoors on the nature trail, and discover the newest traveling exhibit. Butterflies are just the beginning. Founded in July 1995, as the first stand-alone non-profit invertebrate zoo in the nation, the Butterfly Pavilion is a 30,000 square foot facility situated on an 11-acre campus provided by the City of Westminster, Colorado.
The Butterfly Pavilion was created by the Rocky Mountain Butterfly Consortium, a Colorado non-profit founded in 1990. As a publicly supported facility, the Butterfly Pavilion is primarily supported by admission fees, community support and by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). The five-acre site was provided by the City of Westminster.
