Glasswing. (I think?)

Not sure of the identity. Currently processing and making small print of each subject to ask owner the identities.

This was in 'Bugtopia' at Hornsea Freeport. Family have been and enjoyed it - worth a visit if in the area. They have shows where they let the kids handle certain insects and bugs.

Decided to have a go at close up with the Fuji XT-10, short tube and 60mm macro using a single flash and diffuser. A decent success rate. If you have a go and have not been in a butterfly house you will need to give the gear 10 minutes to warm up and for condensation to evaporate.

DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES change lenses or open ny camera ports whilst in the house. It is VERY warm and humid - you could ruin your gear.
