It's not easy, but you can actually repair a butterfly's wings if it gets injured. Today we're learning butterfly first aid. I look forward to helping my fluttery friends in future 💖🦋 . . . . . #insectfirstaid #butterflyfirstaid #lepidoptera #lepidopterist #entomologist #wingrepair #biaza #eaza #tiwg2017 #titag #longleat #longleatsafari
A butterfly a day for The Big Butterfly Count? Sounds good to us! And what better to get things rollin' than the beautiful Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni)! Brimstones are one of the first butterflies cited in the year as adults hibernate during winter and emerge on warm days in the spring! A truly hardy butterfly! #brimstonebutterfly #butterflies #butterfly #butterflycount #lepidoptera #lepidopterist #entomology #butterfliesofinstagram #butterflylove
