British Butterflies 1963
Gaycon Birds, Butterflies & Moths British Butterflies 1963 British Butterflies 1963 25 - There is much to love about this butterfly set not least the fact that it also features the caterpillar and chrysalis of each butterfly, which are pictured in colour against a light blue background and the backs give basic information such as food, the type of area it likes and where it can be found. It was originally intended that a 2nd series of 25 cards would be issued making a series of 50 in total, as referred to on the card backs, but in fact no further series was issued. An album was also originally available to house these cards which was obtainable from the issuers for a 1/- postal order, as mentioned on the back. Included in this set is a Swallow Tail which is perhaps one of our most beautiful butterflies, the Speckled Wood butterfly who’s chrysalis looks a bit like a Cornish pasty, the Small White which is the enemy of all gardeners, the Silver-washed Fritillary which loves dog-violets and the Red Admiral which migrates over long distances. The cards are size 69 x 36mm
