Harry Potter isn’t the only one with an invisibility cloak and the ability to fly, and one of the Harry Potters of the animal kingdom – the Blue Morpho butterfly (pictured above) – will feature at the Isle of Wight Story Festival this February half term.

Butterfly expert Adam Barron, who will be running a session at the event explains,

“There are many butterflies with this ability to appear a certain colour, when in fact they are no that colour at all. So yes, it is like Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak… My Favourite butterfly with this ability is called the Emerald Green Swallowtail.”

The session is a must-see for nature enthusiasts
of six and over, as Adam will be sharing the knowledge and amazing facts he has
learnt in his life studying nature, there will lots of hands-on things to,
practical advice on setting up a butterfly patch in your garden, and the chance
to get up close and personal with some of Adam’s creepy crawly friends.

Lots to see and do
Nature is one of the themes of this year’s IW Story Festival and children will also have the chance to meet the bats from the IW Bat Hospital, do some Glorious Gull spotting and making with Dave Fairlamb and do a Bats, Bugs and Bunnies walk with storyteller Sue Bailey.
