DIY Taxidermy Butterfly Box

DIY Taxidermy Butterfly Box

Last summer, I discovered several dead butterflies in an outside room. Tragically, they’d found their way in, but didn’t make it back out. Most were closed, but there was one that was still open and fully intact. I try not to think what a horrific death that must have...
