California Butterflies 197 images Created 3 Jan 2016
This collection represents the first 12 years of a rather ambitious project. The idea was to capture portraits of every species of butterfly in California. I figured it was impossible so I'd never be bored. The adventure has taken me countless miles from sea level to alpine lakes; from desert spring to mountain peak. To date, there are over 120 species represented in the portfolio, with many more in the archive. Some of them I pursued for years while others just landed on me! The butterfly families here are arranged in the same order as a typical field guide. Enjoy!
