At my work they’ve got a butterfly garden in a heated tent over the Easter holidays. I popped in to take some pictures in my tea break earlier this week. I don’t know what any of the species are, I don’t know much about butterflies. They had a reference board to compare the live ones to, but I didn’t have time to look closely.
Butterflies look creepier from below.
They put all this mouldy fruit out for the butterflies. They loved it, but the smell is pretty bad, especially the oranges.

This butterfly was my favourite. It looks like there’s an optical illusion of a smaller butterfly on its back.
