The appearance of a butterfly on a natural lawn or on a path in the woods impresses both due to the richness and diversity of colours on its wings and due to the surprisingly delicate and firm, at the same time, moves of the flight of these fascinating insects.
The exhibition of living tropical butterflies, provided by the “Grigore Antipa” National Museum of Natural History in Bucharest invites us all to discover a small part of the extremely diverse world of these insects. It exhibits species widely present in some tropical regions of America, Africa and Asia, and they may be observed in their natural environment only at great georgraphical distances from our country.
“Butterflies have often stirred the imagination of people from the oldest times. Frequently, they have been perceived as quasi-universal symbols of delicate and ephemeral beauty, and also as extreme examples of the surprising transformations that can be undergone by a living creature throughout its existence”, organizers announced in a press release.
People visiting the exhibition of living insects will be able to closely observe a group of animals with a fascinating lifestyle and also to admire the richness of colours and forms so frequently noticeable at butterflies of tropical areas.
Butterflies may be admired from Tuesday to Sunday, during 10 am – 6:30 pm.
