More Butterflies

Getting over all the travel turmoil of the last few days and more and more my mind is going back to the collection of butterflies that I saw in Alexandra. That is, the collection put together by a soldier on the Solomons in World War 2. I posted about these a few days ago.

I don’t want to be too woowoo but I can’t help thinking that there is something extra to these butterflies. If I hadn’t known anything about their history would I have felt the ‘pressure of the more’. If I showed them to a total stranger and held them up against recently caught specimens would they be able to detect a difference? I’m not sure.

I intend finding out, and will use my camera to test the proposition.
