|Butterflies in our Garden
The software company Mastek had a stand at Comdex 97 and Roger Bowles was
on their stand, drawing caricatures of visitors. When he discovered my interest in
butterflies, this is the picture he drew of me. I am grateful to Jeffrey Sam of
Mastek for permission to reproduce the drawing here.
Before you send me an angry e-mail, let me hasten to say that I stopped
collecting butterflies many years ago. These days I get much more satisfaction from
studying live insects, in their natural setting.
Butterflies are frequent visitors to our lovely garden, which is tended
mainly by Irene. I thought that you might like to see a few pictures of some of the
species that have visited us, and read a little about some of them.
