You can’t really tell from these pictures, but if you zoom in close you can see every single detail on the butterfly’s body.
Okay, so we couldn’t miss out an obligatory butterfly mating shot. These two were at it for ages!
We don’t think we’ve ever seen so many gorgeous butterflies in one place before. Each speices had it’s own favourite plant too, hovering around it more than the others.
The butterflies seemed to like resting in the sun. All that fluttering about must make them mighty tired!
Some of the species rested in places with their wings open, others closed. I assume it was due to body heat but I could be wrong. I usually found it was the ones I wanted to take a photo off with their wings open would be closed!
There were so many butterflies fluttering about, it was hard to concentrate on one at a time, we kept seeing other, equally beautiful wings flying past.
