This "Butterfly Collecting" wall art print shows two people in the middle of an idyllic scene, with yellow flowers all around them and mountains in the background, swishing their nets to catch butterflies.
They are probably studying them.
It is probably very worthy.
It is probably for the good of the species.
The two heroines of our story are very caught up catching all the 'normal' sized butterflies that are flitting around their legs in joyous, abundant impressionistic type glee.
In the background I imagine they have something like the 'The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams' playing.
It is all frightfully idyllic.
They probably have a table just out of view with salmon and cucumber sandwiches and a lovely hot pot of tea, just waiting for them to finish.
BUT NO-ONE TOLD THESE PARTICULAR BUTTERFLIES THAT IT IS FOR THE 'GOOD OF THE SPECIES' TO END UP IN A NET!
And there are a few things our heroines haven't yet noticed...
1/ They haven't noticed three giant sized butterflies landing on them!
(I expect they are light. Could happen to anyone).
2/ The one on the right hasn't noticed two giant caterpillars crawling up and down her legs!
(Probably just as well. That would be enough to freak anyone out).
3/ Neither of them have noticed the 'new' species of 'Massive Horned Yellow Vampire Butterflies' that are headed straight for them in a swarm to feed!
Blood dripping from their horned fangs.
Vampire Bats have nothing on these guys.
Sorry about that.
P.S. Insect conservation is important work. According to experts, insects make up around 80% of all the animal species on Earth, with 900,000 different kinds of living insects already known, and probably millions more that we don't. That sounds like hyperbole, but in fact experts reckon that there are at least 2 million species of bugs, and possibly up to 30 million!
That is a lot of bugs!
But they are going extinct at a frightening rate.
You can help to save the bugs here.
