To all members who honor me by finding value in my work through paid membership, I thank you so very much for helping me regain my creative insanity by allowing me to purge advertising.


I constantly revisit these images to update and refresh or replace the old and funky.

lycaenidae crowned hairstreak butterflyiconGossamer-Winged Butterflies

The Lycaenidae, also called gossamer-winged butterflies, are the second-largest family of butterfly. There exist about 6,000 species worldwide. Many of these butterflies feed on aphids and ant larvae.

Many of the Lycaenidae butterflies have spots at the base of their tails to confuse predators from knowing which way the butterfly is facing. More butterflies will be added to this page in the near future.

This butterfly family is divided into subfamilies of

  • Polyommatinae,
  • Lycaeninae,
  • Theclinae
  • Miletinae.
