Free animated butterflies with background shadow

Framed animated butterflies

I love making butterflies and I even have several collections of butterfly cigarette cards hanging on my study wall. These animations are simple to make if you have the right software and to produce a shadow is an extra bonus. I have made these butterflies as a Flash movie and it is possible to make the shadow transparent to give a really good 3D effect. With these animations there was no need to make a transparent background because the whole animation is filled with colored pixels.

We have some more animated butterflies with a transparent background and a real lifelike texture applied to their wings.

Because of interest in the butterfly that national flags rendered onto their wings I have now made a collection of them with a transparent background. Click the National flag butterfly link below to see them
