The bugs are back in town

Another trip to Kew Gardens and I thought I would spread the posts over a few days as I took lots of photos. So starting with something different, in the Princess of Wales greenhouse they have a few sculptures of giant insects.  Most are made of metal, I particularly liked this fly as it rests on a plant covered rock.

The rest are flying around between the plants.

But to me the best is this moth made of wood in the orchid section.

It is so cleverly done using the different pieces of bark.

The orchids were not bad either,  I love the way they hang the pots from the roof and let the flowers dangle down so you have to wander between them.
