    Wow ! now that is beautiful,l am not a big fan of butterflies {terrified of them} but this one sure is pretty,wonderful capture Dawn xx

  • many thanks trudi, when you go in there they are so busy getting on with their little short lives that they just go from flower to flower mainly, but on occasions they do land on you and a big mirror is in there by the exit to check lol my kids hate it in there too ,dawnxx

    love theglass winged butterflies, didnt know they had them in bristol zoo, really must get there next year, your photos from there are fantastic dawn

  • many thanks sue, yes they are getting these from all over the world and breeding is a sucess there, i never knew these existed before, however most locals are asking the zoo to provide some gb ones as our polulation of our own butterflies is at a dangerous low level, our council is urging us to plant things in our garden to help this situation and the zoo has been asked to help, and then they can let our own free to boost the numbers and it should not be as expensive as this exhibet due to needing less heat, do go its wonderful in there and hehee very warm,dawnxx
