I Saw a Butterfly Flutter By

The location was a Butterfly House just near Devil's Bridge, west of Aberystwyth. We went in (almost exactly one year ago) and of course instantly cameras and glasses steamed up. This impenetrateable mist eventually cleared and we were surrounded by hordes of tropical butterflies. Fantastic for photography, or even just for seeing such a magnificent display of these transient creatures. I'll bet there's some alien creature somewhere thinking just the same about us. One woman ended up covered in butterflies and a few of them seemed inordinately attracted to Sue's jumper, after which a number of photographers seemed to be inordinately attracted to the same subject matter. Let's have a look at some butterfly pictures, and for once I know what they all are.

I'll be posting these and more on my EPZ Gallery in the coming days. Looking back at that day was a pleasant diversion while cooped up withing these four walls!

Glad you've managed to get the names sorted and some nice piccies! Out of interest, I wonder how the wings have got damaged as that is usually down to bird attack (or so i thought)?

@alfpics I assume fair wear and tear as there were no obvious predators in this situation. Or maybe smaller insects?
