From an early age, I have been fascinated by butterflies and moths.  In fact, I both collected, and raised, them while growing up in Florida.  The banner for this website is one of my favorites from those days, the Gulf Fritillary. Today I still enjoy collecting these beautiful creatures and displaying them in frames I make myself.  In addition, I raise many varieties of our native lepidoptera for release here in Bedford. As a natural outgowth of my interests and activities in this area, I have been invited to speak at numerous garden clubs and nature study groups as well as schools.  The picture shown here is of me with some of my caterpillar friends.
