Hi all,

My wife and I live in England but she's is Venezuelan, and luckily she has taken me with her on 3 of her recent trips to see her family. On the first 2 trips I was obsessed with the bird life, but on our last trip I discovered the joy of Venezuelan butterflies and found myself completely ignoring the birds in favour of trying to photograph as many species as I could!

I believe I have around 105 species, though it's possible (highly likely?) that a few moths have sneaked into the list too. IDing them has turned out to be a very difficult business, especially since there doesn't seem to be a single volume field guide on Venezuelan butterflies. I've done my best with what's available on the internet, a copy of the book Butterflies of South America by Bernard D'Abrera, and Mariposas De Venezuela by Theophile Raymond, a facsimile of a 100 year old original.

I'm looking forward to posting up some of my better photos, and hopefully solving a few ID mysteries along the way.

Best wishes,

Iain.
