A couple weeks back I took a trip to Bristol Zoo. It's only 45mins away from me and they had new baby lion cubs in (ADORABLE!) and I got to feed Rainbow Lorikeets while they sat on my arm!
One of my other highlights was the Butterfly Forest, basically you walk into this super warm greenhouse/tent which has lots of tropical flowers and nectar stations for the butterflies to munch on. There are loads of butterflies and moths from all over the world just floating past you, its really wonderful!
|This is actually a moth - it has see-through wings! Crazy nature.|
|This pattern was actually underneath the wing, the outside was plain brown for camouflage.|
|This butterfly had beautiful, bright blue on black spots, it looked like constellations!|
|This is actually a Moth - as it's so big it only lives for about 7 days after it comes out of it's cocoon.|
Despite my hatred for bugs/creepy crawlies and flying thing I can't help but love beautiful butterflies (and even beautiful moths).
I have a few pinned butterflies in boxes and there are lots dotted around my house. The patterns are insane, nature is so pretty!
Hope you had a great weekend!
