Insect/Butterfly Sources

A friend sent me pictures from when they went to The Museum of Zoology in Cambridge. The first photos are from Darwin’s personal beetle collection, and the others are various other species on display. I love the confusing mix of beetles and labels in Darwin’s collection, and I think it would make a great digital pattern. I think the markings on the moths and beetles look beautiful, and you could make some really bright and colourful garments and prints inspired by them.
