The airplane is from Delta.

The iguana and the butterflies are from Gumbalimba Preserve & Animal Sanctuary in Roatan, Honduras. :D

If you have a chance to go, I recommend it.

They have "wild" parrots, macaws, and monkeys. They do live on the preserve, but they're not put in cages or enclosures.

They will all get on you and pose with you.

The monkeys will try to steal your glasses or large earrings. The macaws will steal the button off the top of your baseball cap.

The monkeys go up and sleep in the trees at night.

The butterflies are from the insect exhibit (they are from all around the world and are all, unfortunately, dead. I wasn't excited to see this, but was very impressed the exhibit and happy that I got to see it!

To make it more believable, I had to desaturate their color. They are amazingly vivid!

Cute stowaway! The butterflies aren't working for me so much; I'd rather some more variety in their poses and not just their positions. But I like the idea.
