To understand the pollination of these flowers’ researchers spent days and days in the field filming the behaviour of butterflies on these flowers. This animation was designed to give viewers the feeling that they are in the field with the researchers observing the butterfly’s behaviour through the lens of a camera.

Our butterfly friends that feature in this story perform some impressive aerial manoeuvres, so we thought that they deserved the opportunity to be able to be seen from all angles with this puppet rig. 

These are some of the carefully digitally painted flowers, all of which helped to tell this marvellous story of flower morphological diversity.
