Butterflies are beautiful, fascinating creatures and essential to biodiversity. Of 70 species on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, 18 are in trouble.
Retired teacher, photographer and author, Mike Yip, shares his knowledge and gorgeous photos of butterflies with a focus on species to be found on Pender Island.
A bird photographer since 2004, Mike got interested in butterflies in 2013 when he discovered there was hardly any local information about them. In 2014, he published Vancouver Island Butterflies.
