Taking Flight – Butterflies Of Kos

Taking Flight – Butterflies Of Kos

It’s been a busy few weeks gearing up for our holiday and wedding on Kos, one of the Dodecanese Greek Islands in the Aegean Sea. Hence why I’ve been so quiet lately! I’ll be rather occupied for the next three weeks but don’t worry, I will be back to regular posts soon. Before we leave, I wanted to share with you a collection of the beautiful butterflies I saw on our last trip to Kos. Greece is home to many species of butterflies, some native and others migratory. Many are seasonal, so this selection is just a taste of the butterflies that can be seen throughout the year in Greece. I hope to see more while we’re out there for the wedding!

What could better illustrate Transformation than the life-cycle of a butterfly? This is the metamorphosis of Papillio memnon, lowi Druce and rumanzovia, all types of Swallowtail and Mormon Butterflies, as seen at the Butterflies In The Glasshouse event at RHS Wisley Gardens.
