more than two and a half thousand species of butterflies and moths to be
seen in the UK. There are thousands of insects to see, Beetles, Shield
Bugs, Dragon and Damselflies to name but a few. On this site I have many
pictures of Butterflies, Moths, Dragon and Damselflies, True Bugs, various
flies, Bee's, Beetles, including Ladybirds, Wasps and parasitic insects.
there are several hundred species of insects featured on my old website, I
have decided to start with my best four hundred or so, most presentable species images on
the Hatton's Garden website. As I time goes' by, I will vet some of the
other photographs, and gradually add them to the site. for the moment I
will put a mixed selection of macros, and other insects. I feel that my
latest attempt at web design is more presentable, and a bit less amateurish
than my previous attempt.
Some of the images from my old
website are of poorish quality. This particularly applies to the images
from Florida, which I have decided to put several pictures, on just two
pages. The equipment I was using at the time was not well suited to
macro photography. However you may find a sample of butterflies from
website is not intended to be an identification manual, but to share with
you a some of my experiences from over the years. My website is
non profit, and is purely a hobby, some errors may have crept in
here and there. Please feel free to email me with constructive criticism,
it will be greatly valued.
said, I invite
you to come on in, and take a look a look at the fascinating, and often
beautiful world of insects.
