Home Page of Butterflies at Home ... All about those amazing creatures that inhabit our home gardens!

Morphed Tiger Swallowtail

We love butterflies, and are still learning about them at this advanced age. This website helps organize our knowledge and focuses us on learning even more.

We've learned more about butterflies in the past year than we did in the previous 64 years! And we're learning along with our granddaughters, who also share our love of nature and the marvelous mysteries and lore of the butterfly.

We are not trained lepidopterists or entomologists, but merely amateurs fascinated by nature! There are undoubtedly others who are just beginning their journey toward understanding and identifying butterflies. Maybe this site will help them. For those who are more experienced and knowledgeable, there are many fine websites for them.

Our butterfly photo archive is growing daily, but we have not yet been able to photograph all of the species people see in their home landscapes.

And special thanks go out to great nature photographers Alan Schmierer and Ranger Robb Hannawacker for sharing many of their beautiful photographs of butterflies with us via Flickr.

If you have a photo to share, we would love to publish it so others can enjoy it too. Space is limited, so we are not able to post all of the photos we receive.

You can email your photos to info@butterfliesathome.com along with a description of the species, location taken, and other pertinent information. If you would like credit or a link back to you, include that as well. If it is a copyrighted image of yours, please give us appropriate permission to use the image on this website.
