Owl Butterfly at the Artis Royal Zoo (also known as Natura Artis Magistra), Amsterdam (Holland)
The Owl Butterfly is a butterfly, in the genus Caligo, known for their huge eyespots, which resemble owls' eyes.
They are found in the rainforests and secondary forests of Mexico, Central, and South America.
The Butterfly Pavilion is the largest of its kind in the Netherlands, covering a thousand square meters and housing thousands of butterflies.
Twice a day, butterflies that have just crawled out of their cocoons are released into the pavilion.
