Nice photos.

A fren told me that he shoot butterfly by netting them. Carefully wrap them with paper and keep overnight in freeze. When all setting ready, take them out and rub some honey. The butterfly will be slowly awake in couple of minute and fly away. Just to share. Have not try it myself because I seldom macros.

Should be fridge, but not freezer.

The freezing and thawing process will kill too many cells and the butterfly itself.

Done that before with a firefly larva. Insects are more tolerant to cold temperatures, but not freezing temperatures.

Used to take up a course in entomology during my university days.

OM, did you sweat a lot and let the butterflies lick you?

It was leaf. Fooled you, didn't I? . Penang Butterfly Farm should be just as good. Been there. Both seem similar to me.
