As a kid, there were two kinds of butterflies I remember. The Monarch Butterfly and the Eastern Swallowtail Butterfly.
For the longest time, those were the only ones I knew. Then along came white butterflies and yellow butterflies. However, I still wasn’t paying much attention to the Lepidoptera around me.
Then, a number of years ago, I began photographing the little flying creatures. It didn’t take me long to realize there were a lot more colorful butterflies than I had previous thought.
One of my favorites these days are the blues.
