Butterflies at Wisley

Last week I visited the RHS gardens at Wisley. It was a bright and sunny day but with a chilly wind. The tropical section of the glasshouse was hosting a display of butterflies called Flights of Fantasy. What a contrast going in to a hot and humid area from the cold outside and trying to spot the butterflies amongst exotic foliage through steamed up glasses and camera lens!

Meanwhile back outside snowdrops, crocuses and hellebores were braving the cold.
