Two images today, both from the Pacific Science Center.  We went in part to view the Harry Potter travelling exhibit, and  in part because it is (and always has been) one of my favorite places to visit and learn.
In the image above, note the striking wing colours and its amazing little eye.  You'll also notice that only four of its six legs is visible.  This is true, too, of the other butterfly.  I'm not sure why this is. In the image below, note the pattern in its eye, and the tightly curled up mouth part.
