Butterflies and Other Flying Things In My Yard : In the Spring of 2007 I planted a butterfly garden in my yard in Fort Worth, TX.  I had over 30 different kinds of butterflies in the first year.  It's my goal to get good photos of them all!

myButterflies and Moths : A collection of wild butterflies and moths, one of each species. Most are from Ontario and other Canadian provinces but a few were taken on trips outside of Canada.  Some photos are not that great or the butterflies may not be in the best condition. The not so great photos act as placeholders until I can get a better shot. The images are arranged in approximate taxonomic order, with butterflies first followed by moths.  Names for the North American specimens are from the <a href="http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/taxonomy">Butterflies and Moths of North America</a> database.  Some of the ID's may be wrong so corrections are welcome.

Butterflies and Moths : I tend to be an opportunistic photographer.  While my main focus is on shooting birds, I am on the lookout for other subjects.  Butterflies and moths are always on the menu.  Rarely do I carry a macro lens to shoot butterflies or other insects.  Most of the photographs are made with my 300 or 500 lenses.  With these lenses, I can create a soft, blurred background that is both colorful and allows my subject to stand out.  When a macro image is shown, I used a Canon EF100mm f/2.8 Macro lens supported on RRS BH-40 ballhead and a Slik Pro 813 CF-II tripod.  Multiple camera bodies are used with that lens.  If there is an error in naming any of the butterflies, please let me know.
