Th striped ones are zebra butterflies (Heliconius charitonius). The dark blue guy is some kind of swallowtail. I need a better butterfly book.

Was this a butterfly exhibit?

Brookside Gardens has a conservatory in which they purchase pupae of butterflies, they put the chrysalises in emergence boxes till they hatch out, and then those fly around the greenhouse.

the tough part is that these guys in the exhibit could be from all around the world.. in the picture from a previous post, P remembers that the big guy eating the fruit with the spot on his side is a "Owl" from Costa Rica. Thanks for the zebra identification, they look like a zebra. :)
