Before you send me an angry e-mail, let me hasten to say that I do not collect butterflies.  I have an extensive library of books from all over the world about butterflies and get much satisfaction from studying live insects, in their natural setting.

Butterflies are frequent visitors to our lovely garden, which is tended mainly by Irene, my wife.  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 them.
