It is blue-butterfly day here in spring.


Butterflies are awesome, right? Right.

Butterfly World is a new place that's opened right round the corner from my house, so we headed on down there a couple of weeks ago to take a sneaky look. It's a work-in-progress project that aims to be the biggest butterfly experience in the world by the time it's completed next year, dedicated to preserving the butterfly species.

Even though parts of it are still being built, what's there is really cool. Like giant sized garden ornaments!




Currently, it's a fairly small operation, with a butterfly house and some pretty gardens and a nice lake. But according to the website, by next year there is going to be a living rainforest there! I'm not really sure what that means, but
it sounds cool!

Part of it is the Future Gardens, which were built as part of a design competition. And if you've ever seen the Mighty Boosh episode with the 'Future Sailors', you will know exactly what I sing every time I pass the sign when I come off the M25. Future Gardens!




There were weird but cool rockeries everywhere. With Action Men and clocks and stuff.



Anyway, I was mostly just excited to get the chance to take photos of butterflies at super close range. Ahhh butterflies.

  8. This place looks amaing, beautiful photos! There's a wee Butterfly World near where I live but it's nowhere near as cool as this, it's pretty much just a giant greenhouse haha.

  10. This place looks super awesome, and I love the photos. All your photos are amazing, they have this certain effect to them which I wish I could create myself! Do you edit them at all on photoshop or is it just camera skill? :D
