Come and get up close with a large tree nymph, also known as a paper kite butterfly.  From today, face masks must be worn in the Butterfly House and Shop.

Day 10 - a snap from the Seaforde Tropical Butterfly House. Definitely an enjoyable day out for all ages! Walled garden with some eye catching flowers, resident peacock strutting its stuff, and the main feature being the butterfly house itself. Butterflies, turtles, exotic birds, and even a little insect display towards the exit - what more could you want? 🦋🐢🐦🐜 #photography #canonphotography #turtle #seafordegardens #seafordebutterflyhouse #seaforde #wildlife
