All the photos are taken in pure natural conditions and depict fully free butterflies and moths. I add some main synonims, unfortunately, in many cases the nomenclature, especially generic, is still unstable and I am not able to adduce all the circulating synonyms.

(Click an image to enlarge and see a detailed legend, often a story why this butterfly or its very shot is interesting)
