Visitors to the Stratford Butterfly Farm will be able to see a stunning photographic display by well-known wildlife photographer Peter Farmer of Survivalphotos. The montage of breath-taking photographs features close-up images of the butterfly’s life cycle and will be on display in the caterpillar room throughout the summer holidays. Admission to the exhibition is free however normal admission charges apply.

Peter has held numerous gallery exhibitions and sells his work nationally and internationally. In addition to printed images, Peter also offers a range of greetings cards and bespoke calendars. Peter’s overriding objective is to achieve an image that helps the observer’s eye move through the picture before it settles on the ultimate subject.

Peter stated “The world of tropical butterflies has become a fascinating project, capturing not only the charm of the adult insect, but also the beauty across the breeding cycle: from the sculptured shapes of the eggs, the colours and form of their larvae, to the creative engineering of the pupae, as inside the miracle of the final stage of metamorphosis changes the larva into the butterfly”.

Emma Bartholomew, Marketing Manager at the Stratford Butterfly Farm stated “We are delighted to have a selection of Peter’s photographs on display throughout the summer. The images are spectacular and I’m sure all our visitors will enjoy seeing the results of Peter’s work”.

Another great reason to visit the Butterfly Farm is that it has recently been awarded the prestigious 2013 ‘Certificate of Excellence’ award by TripAdvisor for the second year runningand ‘highly commended’ for its show stand at the BBC Gardeners World Live Show at the NEC in Birmingham!
