Ok, now to say that these things were huge would be an understatement. They were magnificently gigantic! Yet at the same time, because they didn’t move and there weren’t many of them in the space, you could very easily just walk straight past them as they were seldom in motion and hidden in the foliage where they hung. Lastly we have a very docile Iguana which was situated in a tank there, having a nap on a branch. Up next will be the images from the V&A museum but bear with me, there are an absolute ton of these to go through as I filled two 8GB cards and most of a 2GB one as well with that trip so I’ll either post these based on themes or in many more parts than this lot.

Before posting the last images from the exhibit, I’ll break things up a bit with these images of the beautiful and exotic flowers they had growing in the exhibit for the butterflies to perch and feast on.
Last year the Natural History Museum were hosting a butterfly exhibit in a tent just outside the main building. I went down there with my brother and mother after he went and came back with some wonderful images of his own. It was astoundingly hot in there to say the least and by the time we got out of there I was very worried that the humidity would screw with my camera or lenses but thankfully nothing bad happened to either. I came out with more images than I’m posting but I’m trying to be a little more discerning of late and only post the stuff I’m really happy with (not to mention cropping out more of the unwanted part of an image to concentrate the eye on the best parts).
