One of the outings to keep a seven year old occupied during the summer holiday was a visit to a Nature World attraction. He wanted to see the bugs but did enjoy the butterflies. There were many species, this is just a small selection that I managed to photograph. It wasn’t easy to try to name them via Google and if I have any wrong please feel free to say so.
A group of Owl butterflies with a little Brown Clipper feasting on the fruit. The Owl butterflies are quite large, it’s quite surreal being surrounded by such large butterflies flying around…and landing on you as well! We had to check we weren’t carrying any on our persons before we left.

Not sure about this one…looks a bit like Dracula’s cape…
