South Devon butterfly house

I was given the opportunity to see the stunning photography on display at the 'Wildlife Photographer of the year' exhibition at the Natural History Museum yesterday. It has prompted me to download the photos I took in the summer of some of the most exquisite and beautiful butterflies in the world. They are meant for sharing.

Crimson Patch

Atlas moth
I messed around in photoshop with this image as loved the abstract effect of the patterns and colours

these two were still drying having not long emerged..

Tree Nymph

Cattleheart, True

these beauties were pretty elusive to capture on camera

quite fascinating how the wings of this butterfly were transparent

my lovely ladybirds attempting to survive the onset of winter

they really are social insects
