Hello, I’m Sylvia and I love photographing butterflies!
I started this site in 2007 as a way to keep track of all the butterflies in the garden in east Texas. But then I moved to Asia and butterflying became a bit of an obsession. I’ve been fortunate to live in quite a few places with phenomenal butterfly populations and I usually seek out butterflies where ever I go.
Now that we have moved back to the Pacific Northwest, I’m starting all over again learning about the butterflies in this neck of the woods. But chasing butterflies is still a big thrill and I’m excited to start filling in another lifelist.
I spend endless hours on identifications, but I welcome corrections when I get it wrong. I’m only an amateur enthusiast 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.
