Sounds like you need an indoor butterfy sanctuary!!

Oh, that would make sense. haha thank you. I wish my back yard. The heavy increasing pesticide use in this area has chased them all away. We have to escape to see anything, so sad.

WOW That's stunning!
p.s. on the "habitats" you may add where you actually spotted your "subjects".... like in your backyard or garden, etc.....
