Rollin Coville Photographs

Lepidoptera Gallery

Updated on December 2, 2012

Butterflies and Moths are probably the most popular insects among the general public, amateur and professional entomologists, as well as insect photographers. Because so many very good photographers have been interested in this group, in the past I have shied away from going after the large the showy butterflies and moths, unless a fortuitous opportunity presented itself. Now with Digital SLRs I find that I am more willing to pursue these creatures.

Below is a list of the families for which I have one or more photographs. You can either click on the family name links listed below or use the expanding tree on the left to explore the photographs.
