I'm Julie and I live in Opua, Northland, New Zealand.
Opua is in the far north of our country where the weather is warm and ideal for butterflies.
I have been fascinated by butterflies for as long as I can remember. At school we were encouraged to raise Monarch Butterflies and had some great teachers who allowed our little charges to climb all over the classroom. I am interested in all butterflies and am fascinated by their transformations from egg, to caterpillar, to butterfly.
Now, as a photographer specialising in macro photography, I love seeing their amazing details when I look into my photos.
