Exotic Flutters.

While I sort through the images taken during various walks this week I thought I would share a few of the exotic butterflies seen during a visit to the Bi-Centenary Glasshouse, RHS Wisley at the end of February.
Blue Morph (wings closed)
Blue Morph (wings open)
Emerald Swallowtail.
Tree Nymph
If you can ID these, then please let me know.
And finally the Owl.
Have a good weekend everyone......FAB.


  1. Oh my, these are lovely! Great camera work, Frank.

  2. Amazing photographs of some beautiful butterflies Frank.

  3. Those are certainly beautiful Frank. I bet is was a treat to see these creatures of summer at this time of year.

  4. What beautiful exotic butterflies they are Frank. They are all stunning but my favourite is the Emerald Swallowtail.

  5. Such stunning butterflies. You've taken some lovely photos Frank.
    Especially like the Emerald Swallowtail, although all are beautiful.
    Have a good weekend.

  6. The ones below the 'Tree Nyph' for ID are types Mormon butterfly :).

  7. Oh my Frank, these are some stunning-looking creatures. I just love all those big eye spots, and then the beautiful colors with the open wings. That very last photo reminds me of an album cover for a Dead Can Dance record.

  8. Mona & Roy. Thank you very much.

    Coy. They certainly brightened up a winters day.

    Jan. Not sure I did The Emerald justice as I couldn't get above it!

    Shileyanne. A popular choice and I only got one half decent shot.

    Gaina. Thank you for the ID. Much appreciated.

    Heather. Dead Can Dance sounds a bit gothic!!

    Andy & Angie. Cheers.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I always appreciate your comments and feedback.
