Butterfly, October 8, 2019

Butterfly 8This was hands-down my favorite butterfly of the past summer. I called him my superstar, and for good reason. With a wingspan of about four inches and a body the size of my pinkie finger (or larger) he spent a good week posing for me. In this photograph, one can see in detail his proboscis, or coiled tube, with which he feeds.

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.
