Tatton Butterfly dome 

This had to be my favourite part of the tatton flower show . 

Clipper , wingspan 10-11cm
Doris longwing 6-8cm
Giant owl 11-15cm
Common Mormon 7-11 cm
Tiger longwing 10-11 cm
Clipper
One – spotted prepona 4-5 cm
The postman 6-8 cm
We could see them hatching out whilst we were waiting to go in . And you could really get up close . I asked how they captured them all once the show was over . The apparently drop the temperature of the dome and the butterflies drop to the ground where they’re collected and will be taken to Chester zoo.
