Williamson House Butterfly House.

A rained off trip to the beach turned into a trip to a butterfly house. I loved the butterfly house, all those beautiful colourful insects flying around, but it definitely made me skittish. I am not a huge fan of moths. And, moths and butterflies are pretty similar. So, Williamson House Butterfly House, its an Edwardian glass building and pretty impressive, although small. They had a pretty good selection of butterflies and moths, a little house for the pupa too (which was amazing), a few quails handing around and water running around the outskirts with terrapin and koi swimming around. I tried to remember as many names of the butterflies as possible.... but didn't do too well. 

The Owl Butterfly; see the owl eye on its wing!? 
The Atlas Moth, this photo doesn't portray how MASSIVE it is, super beautiful but ever so giantly creepy.

  1. Great photographs and agreed, there's something a little creepy about moths! I'm spoilt with having a butterfly house at our local zoo, could spend so many hours just watching them all fluttering around!
