Intricate Illustrations Of Butterflies, Birds Made With Tiny Pressed Leaves

Artist and illustrator Helen Ahpornsiri from East Sussex has been creating delightfully intricate pressed leaf illustrations of wild animals and insects that are no bigger than a coin.

Using a wonderful blend of colorful fern leaves and stems, Ahpornsiri carefully arranged them into stunning mosaic-like illustrations of butterflies, birds and other animals.

Take a closer look at her illustrations below.
