Butterfly World

Last week I visited Butterfly World which is situated on the outskirts of St Albans in Hertfordshire. Currently, it's more of a butterfly house than a "world" as the actual project - Biome- is not finished. However, there is plenty to see, photograph and learn from different species of butterflies, moths, bees, ants and insects. All well preserved and looked after by highly informative and friendly staff.  I would not just recommend this place for an enjoyable family day out but for educating young children about the life cycle of butterfly and its improtance for the environment and what can be done to attempt to reverse this species. Here is sample images from my visit to Butterfly World, for which I have used only my Olympus M.ZUIKO 60mm 1:2.8 on an Olympus OMD-E5 camera. Enjoy!

Jena, I did not know there were so many different colours of butterflies. Your photography puts the icing on the cake by ensuring the beautiful markings stand out. Thanks for sharing.
