When my mom asked what I wanted for my birthday last month, I didn't have to think very hard -- I just sent her a long list of potential suggestions from my Etsy favorites. And then promptly forgot what I'd sent, until this came in the mail:

Blue Mountain Butterfly Display, $40

Isn't it gorgeous? It's a perfectly captured Blue Mountain Butterfly, framed by Biologist/Entomologist Kevin Clarke of Bug Under Glass. He only uses farm-raised insects, and each piece has a replica vintage museum label (signed and numbered) on the back with detailed info about the species, so you can feel like a true collector.

I can't stop admiring my little butterfly, and I already have my eye on a few more to add to my collection: the Charles Darwin Callithea, or maybe the Yellow Migrant Sea Monster.
