    Hi all!

    For the first time here i decied to post some pics of our local Leningrad Zoo (in city of the Sankt-Petersburg and the Leningrad was his former name before famous "Perestroyka").
    This post is dedicated not for all the Zoo expositions but just to the just 2 days ago opened excibition of the living butterfly, dry insects educational collection and some arthropods.
    As a contributor for the Zoo (my wife is currently a Zoo worker) on mt limited spare time I take part in some places of the exposition.
    So, beautiful living butterflies for the first time in the beautiful city of the Sankt-Petersburg ;)
    Enjoy.

    P>S> I knew I'm a little bit quicker than it needs as I'm currently working on the english version of the Zoo's site but just look the fotos :)

  4. Very nice pictures Mikhail. I was recently on a butterfly farm in Belize that may well have supplied some of the pupae for this exhibition. They export as many as 5000 to Europe every week!
