The Imperial Butterfly House, Vienna

This is the Museum district in Vienna. The building below reminded me of Auckland's Winter Gardens, but on a much grander scale. Housed in one half was the Imperial Butterfly House, a hot, sticky jungle garden whose heart bet with the wings of hundreds of bejeweled butterflies, some the size of your hand. I marveled at the breadth of nature's imagination. It's basically about the delight of children.
