About the web-site:  I have been fascinated by butterflies since I was a child and having recently acquired  a  digital  camera  I  decided  to  take  up  photographing  these  beautiful  insects. By publishing  my photos on  this website I  hope  to share my hobby with other people who may be interested. 
    Most of the photos are of butterflies found in Trentino in the north of Italy, where I currently live, so the  web-site  should probably  be called  "Butterflies in Trentino"  rather  than "Butterflies in Italy", but I thought that this title would be too restrictive in the long-term. 
    The species included here  are by  no means all the varieties  that can be found locally - I hope to come across many more of the less common ones and add them to  the  site little-by-little. I have had a few  problems in accurately  identifying   some of the species photographed.  If you spot a mistake, please let me know, so I can correct the error.
