Butterfly Replicas Ltd was devised and set up by artist/entomologist Mike G. Mike had an engineering s background prior to forming Butterfly Replicas Ltd as a new challenge.
A lifelong amateur entomologist, Mike's main interest has always concentrated on the varied species of Birdwing butterflies (Ornithoptera). Starting as a collector but these days very much a conservationist, Mike now breeds butterflies and moths for photographic and research purposes.
Butterfly Replicas Ltd was seen very much as an engineering challenge in order to find a way to replicate the fine details and wonderful colorings of rare and unobtainable species - now prohibited for collection due their precarious position as viable breeding colonies. Mike hopes this will go some way to alleviate further illegal dealing in protected species ,although habitat destruction is the real danger to these jewels of the tropics.
