This shot, and I suspect a lot of your others (which I'm about to work my way through) are in a different league.

It's a Belter...!

I just found out from staff at my 3year olds nursery you can buy these butterflies in a kit... really...!

You get caterpillars and food along with a habitat so you can watch the cycle then release them.

By typing in Insect Lore you'll find kits to suit if you fancy a dabble... we do.
