Bird Photography

We have been to many areas of the Continental United States and Mexico photographing butterflies.  For the purposes of our web site we have grouped all these butterflies into one list called American Butterflies.  The species that mainly occur in Mexico have a green background on our list.  You can start by jumping to the common or scientific name of a butterfly group or you can scroll down and browse our list.  If you want to learn more about Central American, North American and Caribbean butterflies, visit the Butterflies of America web site.  There is a vast collection of photos, downloadable scientific papers and a list of butterflies that occur from Panama to Alaska and the Caribbean.
