Flock of Flying Butterflies
|Every framed flock of "flying" butterflies is
made to look like a natural migratory swarm of
butterflies of identical species and color
sweeping across your wall. These are our
most beautifully framed real butterfly collections
because they mimic butterfly migrations perfectly!
The realistic way each insect is mounted with all
of the same species flying in a similar direction
is just breathtaking to look at. There are several
variations of these multi-framed butterflies:
such as the little sulphur
butterflies (Eurema lisa), and the Orange Barred
Sulfur butterfly (Phoebis philea). A few frames
include assorted species of Callicore and Swallowtail
butterflies in a natural arching formation.
If your are going for an elegant butterfly
effect, decorate several of the most important
areas around your home or office with
a mixture of different butterflies and other
amazing insects. For those of you with an eye for
interior design, you will see
many locations on your walls that could be instantly
dressed up with colorful framed butterflies.
Buying framed butterflies actually helps the earth's
ecology by allowing people to preserve butterfly
and moth habitats and populations in the wild.
Life wouldn't be the same without these gracious
creatures fluttering around our planet.

|Butterflies and moths are a great way for
anyone from a beginning naturalist to an
experienced entomologist to appreciate nature
first-hand. If you catch, collect or simply
study butterflies and moths, watch out because,
you could be considered an lepidopterist
before long. A great way to start a butterfly
and moth collection is to buy one real butterfly
display at a time.
Quite often butterflies get confused with
moths, but there are a few simple differences
between them. Even though both, butterflies
and moths, belong to the great order of Lepidoptera
they can still be distinguished by certain
general characteristics such as that butterflies
fly by day and moths fly at night. All higher
butterflies go into the chrysalis state and
form a pupae without making a silken cocoon,
while most higher moths do in fact make a
silky cocoon. On the one side, the bodies
of the butterflies are usually slender, while
those of moths are usually much larger and
stout. The antennae of the butterflies are
generally slender and commonly enlarged at
the end-tips into a miniature "club".
While the antennae of larger moths are commonly
feathery or long and slender, tapering gradually
toward the tip. Butterflies always have a
feeding mechanism (proboscis-tongue), whereas
moths often do not have any feeding organ.
This type of moth simply doesn't eat as an
adult and has to do all of its eating earlier
in the larvae stage of their life. Another
comparison reveals that butterflies rest
with their wings closed whilst moths land
with them open. One notable exception to
this are the butterflies of the Hamadryas
genus (Nymphaliinae) that land exclusively
with their wings laid flat out.
