An as yet unidentified butterfly feeds on a flower in Kullu, India, its delicate proboscis just barely visible. It probably a member of Lycaenidae, otherwise known as the Blues – so named not because of their rather drab outside but rather the brilliant blue that hides in their folded-up inner wings. The largest family of butterflies in the world, it is one of a full third of the world’s butterfly species.

I'm a young teen explorer of a world full of wonders. I tend to be distracted by birds in the middle of a conversation and may or may not narrate butterfly life histories at random intervals. Through my camera and my writing, I aim to bring the wonder I feel when I see a new species or admire a vast vista to a new audience, and avoid driving away my few remaining friends.
