I've recently published two regional butterfly guides for beginners. Simple, but detailed.
Southern Ontario Butterflies and their Natural History, and
Familiar Butterflies of Indiana and their Natural History.

In 2008 Dr. Paul Hebert (widely considered to be the father of DNA Barcoding) created a position tailored to my skillset at the University of Guelph. My job description included Nature Photography, Imaging Lab Photographer, Graphic Designer and Team Leader of the BIObus Project at the Biodiversity Institute of Ontario.
Many thanks to my friend, Dr. Steve Marshall, who introduced me to Paul Hebert, and to Paul for recruiting me to join the team at the University of Guelph.
