A visit to the Middleton Butterfly House

Cethosia cyane, Leopard Lacewing

Last week I visited Middleton Butterfly House near Ditchling, Sussex. I managed to photograph 20 tropical butterfly species plus The Jungle Nymph, the world's largest stick insect which is longer than your hand. It happened to be half term and this was an excellent experience for the children who enjoyed having butterflies land on them and having The Jungle Nymph placed on their hand.
