Exhibition - Winged Tapestries - Moths at Large


Winged Tapestries - Moths at Large

See moths like you've never seen them before.  These large-format photographs by Jim des Rivières are sure to leave a lasting impression.

While their cousins the butterflies often get more attention, moths are older, more numerous, more diverse and in many ways just as beautiful.

On exhibition until March 29, 2015.  See it before it flies away!
