In The Butterfly House (Seattle)

Yeah, it'sa flutterby, but technically it's flowers. (Butterfly House, Seattle's Pacific Science Center.) I have identified the butterfly as a Southeast Asian Paper Kite or Rice Paper Butterfly. The flowers are Pentas lanceolata, the Egyptian Star Cluster, found from Yemen to Tropical East Africa. They are loaded with yummy nectar.
