RHS Wisley... flutters in the rain

Met a friend at Wisley today.. it was blowing a gale and torrential rain.

We headed off for the Glasshouse for some butterflies.

Needless to say the light was awful, but nonetheless..

Hmmmm .. he didn't dare blink :D ..

and flutters never pose with the best of backgrounds..

in the glasshouse a robin was singing and giving it all..

We had a sandwich and a cuppa and a long chat over lunch..

Some lovely sculptures.. just wish the light has been better to do them justice..

Even the Mallards looked fed up with the weather..

I wish there was a butterfly house near here but I don't think there is

Simon, it's not a permanent butterfly house. Each January RHS Wisley has flutters in the Glasshouse... and the types seem to vary a bit each year. Good to see though...
