Exchanging links
I only include links to charitable organisations dealing with the conservation of butterflies, wildlife or their habitats. I do not provide free links to commercial websites.
I accept advertising from booksellers, equipment & livestock suppliers, photographic manufacturers and retailers. I will consider advertisements from other businesses or organisations but retain the right to refuse any advertisement. Please contact me by e-mail to negotiate rates.
Butterfly identifications
I will answer all e-mails, but in order to avoid being swamped, please do not send photographs for identification unless by prior arrangement. I charge a fee of 10 / 15 USD for this service.
