Peggy Notebaert Museum- Butterfly Haven / by Alice Zhao

One of the few things I missed about St. Louis after working there a few years was the butterfly house (www.butterflyhouse.org) located in Chesterfield.  But luckily, we happened to stumble upon a small Butterfly Haven at the Peggy Notebart Museum after we exited the Green City Farmers Market room.  Equipped with our new lens, I was very excited to take some pictures.  I was only able to identify a couple butterflies.  Help, anyone?  (And don't forget to click on them to see the full size!)

Viceroy Butterfly, but you could easily convince me it's a Monarch

The guide must have had fruit juices smeared on his fingers!

Red Lacewing Butterfly, maybe?

This one's gotta be exotic.  Nothing that cool resides in the U.S.!
