Turn to US butterfly expert Rick Mikula compiled a list of butterfly experts across the world who love butterflies and understand them.

The site has several articles on butterflies and moths, a clipart collection, photographs, videos, butterfly gardening tips, sites to buy butterflies for a wedding or special event; real stories on how lives of people have been touched by butterflies. There are also accounts of ancient cultures connected to butterflies.

For many centuries, before the Spanish conquest, butterflies, crickets, fleas, scorpions and spiders were studied by Aztecs, Mayans, Chichimecs and the others. Even today, ethnic groups look up to them for explanations of life and death.
