Butterfly Species Identification

Here are images of the many Lepidoptera (Butterflies and Moths) that we have had the privilage of seeing, making jewelry from, or merely photographing if they were endangered and protected by CITES Agreement. Photos were taken in the Penang Butterfly Garden and in Peru. Some are available in our Shimmerwing butterfly jewelry. We hope you enjoy learning more about identifying these beautiful creatures!
