Those two butterflies are not tiny; they are actually life-sized! The Yujin insects were molded after real specimens so they are all life-sized.

I ment they are tiny even life-sized Very Happy I didn't know Yujin insects were life sized. If one day you would find enough time to show a Yujin insects walkaround or review, you would please me and not only me I guess.
