From the preface: Bird watching has been a hobby with me for the past decade. But as every naturalist or a person with a wild side would agree, when you are out watching birds, you cannot help but observe other denizens of the forest. And who would miss the winged beauties the butterflies. Slowly butterfly watching also caught up with me. It was around 6 years back that purchased my first SLR camera, the basic Nikon FM 10 with a 35-70 mm lens this was what I could afford then. With the equipment not being good enough to photograph birds, I turned my lens to the lesser known fauna, and obviously butterflies have been a target group, a challenge and a source of inspiration.
