Insects are a natural product and as such small imperfections may occur. All the insects are permanently/professionally mounted to the backboard and cannot be removed without causing damage to the specimen. Our black frames are not made from real wood. Ethical concerns over deforestation in many third world countries has led us to pioneer the use of timber substitute framing. All frames have glass fronts with a hook ready to hang. All butterflies, other insects and arachnids are REAL! We do not alter, enhance or otherwise modify their natural colour. Website images are as close as possible to true likeness. Some sizings of insect in frame maybe approximate.
