Official Event Description:

Moths, butterflies, and skippers make up about 157,000 species of  insects and about 1.6 percent of the total number of animal species on Earth. Yet they remain one of the most popular and widely known animals among all ages of peoples anywhere. This presentation will use images, live illustrations by an artist, and projections from real specimens to show just what these fascinating insects are about.  Fantastic forms and  life-histories are presented to show the diversity of adaptations of this scaly-winged group of animals.
