One of the main attractions of Callaway Gardens for me during a recent visit was the Butterfly Pavilion. The day was quite cold but inside of the glass conservatory the climate was quite tropical and the butterflies were delightful! Please don't ask me to identify these butterflies as I don't know what they are but enjoy!
Outside of the pavilion proper were several hatching cubicles with many chrysalises inside. The chrysalises were all at varying degrees of hatching. While we stood there and watched several butterflies hatched out. It was INCREDIBLE!

These two butterflies were quite high up in a tree but were very prominent. They appear to be mating.
This was a very large butterfly-probably about six inches long. It looks familiar but I don't know what kind it is. Does anyone know the names of the butterflies? If so, please leave a comment.
Many of the butterflies appeared to be drawn to the windows, as was this one resting on the ledge...
in the garden...
