Wisley Butterflies

I spent a wonderful morning surrounded by some incredible butterflies in the Glasshouse at Wisley.  Although this is an annual event it was my first time and it certainly won't be my last.
The humidity was necessarily very high and first it fogged my glasses so the world disappeared and then the camera seemed a bit blurred.  Here are few decent ones that I managed to take despite difficulties of vying with the....... 'professionals'!

Scarlet Swallowtail

Tree Nymph

Tiger Longwing
Asian Swallowtail
and there were a lot of these ones but I couldn't get a picture of the wings open.
Owl butterfly (landed on someones coat)

and here just to show Spring is on it's way
A single Camelia bloom.
Hope these all helped to cheer spirits.


  1. Great photos of beautiful butterflies. Sounds like you had a brilliant morning.

  2. Looks like you had a great time Carol. The butterflies look stunning, and so does the Camilia.
