This site is non-commercial and will remain that way. Like thousands of other web pages, it is offered as a free resource and is my way of sharing my passion for butterflies with others. Since I first set it up, back in 1996, it has also been free of advertising, except for specific books or products I have chosen and personally recommend. This is so I have complete control over the content of the site and also so that parents and teachers can have confidence there will be no promotion of potentially undesirable products and services.

Permission to use my images for non-commercial purposes, such as school assignments, research projects or conservation fliers is always granted, free of charge, though of course I retain copyright over them.

I have absolutely no intention to change any of this. However, I have decided, after some consideration, to offer the possibility of making a token donation, to help offset the costs of the site. Please note that this is not a donation to conservation work, butterfly-related charities or any particular research project, but to me personally. I am very grateful for any support received.

If you have found these pages valuable and would like to make a small contribution, please click on the 'donate' button below. It will take you to a secure PayPal/Credit Card payment area.

Otherwise, please continue using the site and enjoying the pictures just as before.

Thank you.
