went to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha Saturday

unfortunately the butterfly exhibit was closed when I went by and I never made it back

despite the cold weather I did find these two unusually large and hardy examples of an unknown, to me, species hiding outside in the brush near the indoor exhibit

any guesses as to its identity, there were several around the general area

Blue hollow winged gargantuan
I would say " blueish green "

but very very confident, I never saw any move despite how close people would get

they have a weird wing structure unlike any other butterfly or moth I have ever seen

These images were captured at the annual Butterflies in Bloom exhibit at Dow Gardens in Midland, Michigan. I haven't identified the green butterfly, and suggestions are welcome. A friend identified the black and red butterfly as Pink Cattlehart (Parides iphidamus).
Images were captured with a K-S2 and SMC Pentax Macro 1:4/100. The photos are cross-posted at Picture of the Week and Show Me Your Insects.

Butterflies and Moths as a subject. It's funny how they will sometimes stand still for you, and other times they barely land, Let's see what you've got.

I'll start the thread with an odd looking moth my wife found a couple weeks ago.

I landed on the 1st post of this thread by mistake and was wondering if someone had ever identified the moth of the OP... I did a quick search for "imperial moth" or "Eacles imperialis" and couldn't find any post...
So I take a chance to confirm you the ID of this nice looking large moth: The Imperial Moth (Eacles imperialis) that lives in Pinus trees...

Rather overexposed- too excited that it sat still for a short while. Moments later it was gone

The first butterfly I've been able to photograph this year - a Peacock in a London park.
