The Butterfly Collection

I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph a Victorian collection of butterflies. These were some of the results.

Prints, and other items available at RedBubble Zazzle and Society6

Butterfly reprise

Been pretty busy with a butterfly art project for a while so the photography has been at rest. Had the gruesome task of cutting off wings at the weekend…

More Butterflies

More preserved butterflies came into the auction house… And back to my house for the weekend! Wish I could afford them but taxidermy and preserved insects seem to be going for a fortune at the moment!

Well, that was a long few days…

Yeah, I admit, it has been a while. Blame a new job for getting in the way. Things are settling down though thankfully and I can start sneaking blogs at work.

Been a bit obsessed with butterflies of late, and working in an auction house has given me access to some very old dead ones.
