There are so many beautiful butterflies and moths in the world, that it is hard to choose which ones to draw. And, once I start drawing them, it becomes equally hard to stop. I started this series as decorations for tea-bags, where they take the place of labels. Folded double, they can sit on the edge of a teacup.
The saturniid moths, which I drew in the same style, were made for the 2020 edition (to be published in November 2020) of a field guide to the alien species of Slovenia (scheduled to be published in November 2020). This field guide can be downloaded free of charge at tujerodne-vrste.info.
