On a very rainy day last Friday we went to visit Butterfly World at Yarm about 40 miles away. We were there for just over an hour and it was very reasonable to get in at only £3.75 a head. I used my ipad to take lots of photographs. This shot is of an Atlas Moth who had emerged that morning and was sitting on a branch waiting for the evening before taking it’s first flight. Here is the Wikipedia link if you would like to know more about this handsome moth who’s wing span can be as much as 10 inches. I love the beautiful patterns on the wings that looked so velvety in reality. If you have never visited a butterfly farm don’t miss out on this unexpected treat.
