Bugs and Butter flies:
The miniature sheet features additional
creatures, including a large and very colourful
male birdwing butterfly (Ornithoptera
priamus). These butterflies prefer to keep to
the treetops where they cruise around with a
gliding flight. Birdwings are internationally
protected by the Convention on International
Trade in Endangered Species.
Also to be found, although perhaps not
immediately, are a stick insect, ant, slater,
weevil, moth, scorpion, cicada, lacewing, crane
fly, centipede, mosquito and dragonfly. These
creatures are hidden within the design. This
design technique is one of the hallmarks of the
work of Graeme Base.
