On first inspection, one might think that this is a photograph of a moth, given the rather dull shade of its wings; however, it is a butterfly. Moths have feathery antennae, while the antennae of the butterfly is smooth with a tiny ball at the end. If anybody can identify what KIND of butterfly this is, I would be very grateful.
I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is also an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, and Nigel.
