“It has to be a good idea,” Ms Taylor said.
“The butterfly has always been a cool thing for us.”

Ms Taylor said the butterfly had been on the market for around three months, with the number of butterflies that were photographed jumping in the past month.
Ms Denton said she was surprised by how quickly it was being shared, even though the butterfly is a rarity in the world of animal conservation.
“I think it’s probably the most unique and unique butterfly to be found anywhere,” she explained.
“So it’s a little bit of a challenge because it’s so hard to capture that kind of beauty in pictures.”
“I just hope people take the time to look at it and say ‘I wonder what this is, why is this a butterfly?'”
