Butterfly release : children

Children are so gentle where butterflies are concerned.

These children were spending their last day in New Zealand before returning to The Netherlands with their parents. I took two of my Monarchs for them to release, and we found a sheltered garden to do so, near Kerikeri airport.

They were really moved – parents and children too. The Dutch word for butterfly (butterflies?) is “vlinders” and I heard the word mentioned often as they asked their Mum and Dad questions.
