Butterfly at Bowring Park

Inspired by a group of images taken by Karen whose photography I admire, I ventured to the Bowring Park greenhouse to capture the butterflies brought to St. John's from the Deer Lake Insectarium. Apparently , the entire population of St. John's ( 150,000) had the same idea and we were packed like sardines in a hot tropical environment. I snapped a few shots and fled !

Identification of this beautiful creature would be much appreciated.

Thank you! You should have gone at 9:00 in the morning just after they open, I did that twice and there were only 2 other people there....lots of time to take as many pictures as you wanted to, as long as you could put up with the heat and humidity.

I took a photo of the butterfly sign and just looked at it, this is a Green Moss Peacock Butterfly from Malaysia & The Philippines.
