I took this photo at a butterfly house, which is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you can appreciate exotic nature and take nice pictures like this one. On the other hand, you see people disregarding warnings such as "do not touch butterflies — you may hurt them", taking pictures of their children touching the insects 😠.
