🦋As my blog marked its 10-year milestone in 2019 I thought it would be a good time to completely review my many trips across Europe & North America. While doing so and looking over numerous unpublished images I found that one area, in particular, required closer inspection.
During my travels to the US, Canada, Spain, France, Croatia, Hungary, and other parts of Europe, my focus has mainly been on birdwatching. However, I have also had the opportunity to observe and photograph various species of butterflies and Odonata. Unfortunately, I have found myself lacking in properly identifying and keeping track of these fascinating insects.

After conducting a thorough review, I have created a personal database of my butterfly listings. Additionally, I am able to share some of the images that were not included in the original blog posts. 

Naturally, if I'm lucky enough to identify new species already in my files, or indeed additions to my life list these too will be updated on the database. LAST UPDATED: April 2023 ~ Spain visit!
