More Thoughts about Butterflies

I am getting ready to attend a conference about butterfly conservation soon.  I was thinking about some butterfly conservation issues, so I went through some of my photos to illustrate the points I would like to make.

But the points are a little complicated–I am having a hard time putting them into words.

Yeah, these photographs will do.  But I still can’t focus my thoughts.  It has to do with how many butterflies we have now, compared to how many would have been flying a century or two ago.

Much smaller numbers now.  But how can I explain that?

So I have a visual entry without much analysis.  I don’t feel like being analytical now.

Maybe tomorrow.
