The Unknown Entomologist


I went on the second day of the estate sale with a friend and was so overwhelmed by this extensive collection of butterflies I didn't buy any. Afterwards I realized what an incredible body of work the owner had collected, documented and preserved.These photos are taken of a portion of a room in the basement.  There were many more rooms full of specimens from floor to ceiling and covering tables. I love collections and hope this landed up with someone who see's the valuable contribution in what looks like a lifelong study of butterflies.
