Butterfly Collection

Since I was a kid, I've collected butterflies. I would pick up the unfortunate things from the road after they'd been hit, or find them soon after their life-cycle was over.

Recently I found my old tin of them in the back (way in the back!) of a cupboard. Most of them were too old and ruined, but there were a few that were still alright.I found a nice display jar at an op-shop and have paired them with my thrifted butterfly tray and coasters.I took them out and photographed them this weekend.

at least you collected them when they were almost dead, always sad to see them caught when they are very much still alive and flying

look very pretty all together
