 Chassahowitzka WMA is over 20,000 acres of wild landscape with a diversity of eco-systems which are home to many varieties of plant and wildlife species and during this time of the season wildflowers will be in full bloom and butterflies will be fluttering!

July is the month for the Big Butterfly Count in the UK (http://www.bigbutterflycount.org/) as well as North American Butterfly Association butterfly count (http://www.naba.org/) and for this event we will focus on photographing these beautiful winged creatures.

Swallowtails, Hairsteaks and many other variety of butterflies flourish at Chassahowitzka WMA and this gives nature photographers the best opportunity to photograph these beauties in their natural environment. 


The life span of a butterfly may only last a short time, so let us take this opportunity to capture their beauty so they will live on forever.
