Author Ras Mykkal will be sharing his spectacular collection of butterfly photographs when he talks at the latest Bermuda Zoological Society lecture next week.

The former sports photographer’s book Bermuda’s Flying Flowers: The Seven Resident Butterflies of Bermuda took the better part of ten years to complete.

The lecture will take place at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo on April 20 and will start at 7pm.

The series of lectures, which started at the beginning of the year, has been organised by the BZS and is designed to teach people of all ages about science and natural history. The talks are free and open to the public, although donations are accepted. For more information about the lectures go to
