I've never been to a butterfly park before, so I have nothing to compare the Bali Butterfly Park Taman Kupu Kupu with. When we first walked in, I thought "uh oh this could be disappointing."
The entrance was devoid of character, information or any kind of pizazz. And when we first went into the park we looked at each other as if to say "where are the butterflies?"
But our quiet wandering proved successful as we realised that there were plenty of butterflies hovering around the ceiling and if we waited long enough, they would fly down to land on flowers for fabulous photo opportunities!
We also spotted a number of dragonflies in the enclosure and I was delighted to snap this close-up.
In the middle of the park was a raised platform showcasing the bizarre and curious insects of Bali.
Below is one that has evolved to look like a leaf.
The biggest stick insects I've ever seen!
The hatching area below.
And a curious insect that has evolved to look like an orchid!
