Judy Burris and Wayne Richards, a sister-brother author and photographer team, are from northern Kentucky. They have been intrigued with butterflies since they were children and always enjoyed spending time on hiking trails looking for animals and trying to identify trees. wildflowers, and insects. As adults, this childhood interest in animals and plant life has translated into a devotion to gardening, specifically to support butterflies in every stage of their development from egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, and butterfly. Judy and Wayne have spent many years observing, hand-raising, and photographing these miraculous creatures in their own backyards. They enjoy teaching others about flower gardening, nature photography, and insect life cycles. They encourage everyone to give more serious through to natural habitat conservation and responsible, chemical-free management of their yards to support native flora and fauna for future generation to enjoy.
