Welcome to Maryland Butterflies!
The purpose of this website is to assist others in the identification of butterflies located in the Maryland area. Hopefully, these photographs will provide a reference guide to aid you on your search of the various butterfly species. Also included are species sighting information, observations, and key identification indicators. Please note that this site is very much a work in progress and not all Maryland butterflies are represented. My eventual goal is to photograph every butterfly that has ever been seen in the state of Maryland. Photos will be added as I take them.
