Tropical butterflies in the Botanic Gardens Bonn

Last weekend I went to see some butterflies in the tropical greenhouses of the Botanic Gardens Bonn. There were only a few of them who have finished their process of metamorphosis.
My first image shows most likely a male „Blue Morpho (Morpho peleides)“ and on image Nr. 2 you can see a „Common Owl (Caligo eurilochus)“.
Both butterflies belong to the family of Nymphalidae.
