Flying colours

Step into the Main Exhibition Greenhouse, where a veritable ballet of softly shimmering colours awaits you. As you stroll through the space you can admire these splendid creatures – if you’re lucky, one might even land on you. Youngsters are sure to have stars in their eyes as they follow the butterflies’ aerial ballet, while their parents will enjoy observing them up close, like photographer Linden Gledhill, and admiring the intricate details of their scales.

An event produced and organized by the Insectarium. Set design by Mylène Chabrol.
