About this event

This video demonstration is about a remarkable species of butterfly which has adapted to its environment through a very specific strategy of survival, mimicry. The evolution of mimicry is often complex and takes considerable observation and thought to figure out its purpose and variations. Bruce Thompson has chosen as an example a swallow-tail butterfly that lives in Africa, often seen in low flight or strung out around muddy pools. The different ‘morphs’ of the species are portrayed in a series of watercolour paintings which he does on-screen, while explaining the ecological purpose. A list of materials is available through Bruce's website www.brucethompsonart.com Length: approximately 17 min.

Register through Eventbrite and you will receive the link to the video presentation by September 1, 2021 - which you can then access anytime throughout the month of September.
