Tell us a little about yourself. My brother, Wayne Richards, and I are co-authors and nature photographers with a special interest in butterflies. We've written several award-winning books.
What was your motivation behind this project? We love to see all the pieces of the puzzle so to speak, so we hand-raise insects in order to photograph every stage of their life cycle.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? We want nature lovers, from the curious to the serious, to understand more about the world around them and be able to identify bugs in every stage of their development. In other words, don't kill that creepy caterpillar - it's going to become something beautiful.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? We learned so many interesting and wonderful new things about the tiny creatures that live in our own backyards. We are amazed by their design details.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Now that would be quite a long list indeed! Basically we enjoy all kinds of nature books that include beautiful photography and fun facts. The Lord's creation is our classroom!
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We love to answer reader's questions on our website at ButterflyNature.com. Our motto is: Learning today to care about tomorrow.
