Amazon Butterflies in Rotterdam

The Amazonica in Blijdorp Zoo (Rotterdam) opened in 2013. The Amazonica is a big greenhouse that mimics the natural conditions of the Amazon rainforest. With hot and humid tropical temperatures inside the Amazonica pavilion, you can find thousands of South American butterflies fluttering around the glass dome. Be aware! Your glasses and camera lenses will steam up immediately.

I visited Amazonica with my family June of last year, on my 20th birthday. I had an amazingly wonderful day, taking tons of photos of butterflies and jellyfish. It was very, very tricky to get a good shot of the blue butterfly in fifth picture. It may not look like it, but those brown butterflies all have that hidden blue colour on the inside of their wings!
