My original photograph of this rare English Swallowtail butterfly was taken a long time ago at the Butterfly House in Syon Park London.The glass paperweight was made using this image.
It weighs 262gms (without the box ) and measures 9.5cm long and 6.5cm at the widest point.It is approximately 2.8cm thick.The back is finished with a black synthetic, baize like material.

The species Papilomahaon-the English Swallowtail is rare in Britain and confined to the fenlands of Norfolk,Suffolk, and Cambridge in eastern England.In the wild it is in flight from April to August;and has a life span of three to four weeks.I have never been fortunate enough to see one of these in the wild, only in the Butterfly House at Syon Park which sadly doesn't exist anymore.

The camera I used was a 35mm Pentax LX and a 90mm Tamron Macro lens. The film was Kodak
If you would like copies of my photograph to make your own cards,it is available at a very reasonable price as a 6x4 ins enprint.These are non digital prints, please contact me if you would like to know more.

This item comes from a non- smoking,pet free environment, and would make an ideal gift for any lover of butterflies or natural history or nature photography. It will bring a breath of English summertime to your office desk or work station.A perfect unisex gift idea for Spring or Summer.

Do please check my terms and conditions before purchase particularly regarding your right to cancel.
It wil be shipped boxed and well protected. Postage is regretably high because of the weight of the glass. Shipping is for UK first class and ordinary non tracked airmail.
