When we were kids, my mom lugged a pile of field guides around on all our camping and hiking around the Western United States. We loved seeking out new species of birds, bugs, flowers, mushrooms, etc. And then we’d look it up in the guide and Mom would make a notation of our sighting. I was hooked!
These days, although I lug around a pile field guides everywhere we go, I mostly chase butterflies. I’ve been fortunate to live in quite a few places with phenomenal butterfly populations.
I spend endless hours on identifications, but I welcome corrections when I get it wrong. I’m only an amateur enthusaist…and I’m still learning.
If you are a fellow butterfly enthusiast, I’d really love to make your acquaintance. Please leave a link to your home on the web, and I’ll return the visit.
