or are you a butterfly lover?

Note: this post is filled with tons of pictures taken with my new Sony Cybershot W170 and it's a back dated post :P

Recently (oh-so-not-recent-now) me and my bb went back to visit his family/my in-laws in penang.. we were there just for 2 nights..

My bb took me to the butterfly farm in penang.. at first i was kinda reluctant to go coz it was hot AND i was afraid the butterflies would land on me! but i gave it a try :)

Some pictures i took of the farm :-












Am amazed of how these ugly lil creatures :-






Will turn into beautiful butterflies in just 28 days :-















And when they died, some of them would be pinned up like this :-


Also getting pinned up are these :-



Besides butterflies, there are some other creatures living in the farm :-

Mandarin ducks


Tortoises


Scorpions




Amazing huh? at first when i looked into the tank, it was pitch black.. until i pressed on the ultraviolet light switch and VIOLA!

Tarantula


And some other insects & reptiles








They also displayed some antiques.. since no cameras are allowed, i had to snap and run! :P



So, how's my photography skill?? hahahaha >.<

the butterflies didnt die. They kill it by using chloroform. My grand dad and uncles were collectors during the late 60s.
