Arlene Ripley, an avid birder and photographer, became fascinated with butterflies while living in Southern Maryland.
Never outdoors without a camera in hand, she began censusing the butterflies that occurred in her home county and produced a butterfly checklist for the nature park where she was a volunteer.
Her interests expanded to observing and photographing not only adult butterflies but learning their life histories by raising them from eggs deposited on their host plants.
She enjoys giving presentations to local birding and butterfly clubs. At the peak of her study of Eastern butterflies, she and her husband left the East Coast and now reside in southeast Arizona where she continues her love of “all things nature.”
Arlene has degrees in Biological Science and Medical Technology. She is always looking for birds and butterflies to photograph whether they are in her own yard or while on world travels.
