Tropical Butterflies of the World - Butterflies of the World by Susan Shimeld
  Tropical Butterflies of the World  (1998)
Subject: Butterflies of the World
Dimensions (centimeters): 59.6 x 44.4
Medium: Oil on canvas
Description: As I child I can remember being mesmerised as I watched butterflies feeding on a buddleia in our garden. They looked so fragile and beautiful as they fluttered from one flower to another searching for nectar and probing their probosces (a thin tubular tongue), delicately and precisely into each tiny flower head.

I have since learned that they are in fact quite tough little critters. Some species flying 1,000s of miles, across mountains and oceans - treacherous terrain, in order to reach breeding and feeding grounds. The seed for my fascination with butterflies had been sown.
