Derek Longhurst: Painted Ladies and Spotted Jezebels

Derek Longhurst has spent half a century finding and photographing rare and exotic butterflies around the world. In this session he introduces us to the early years of bug hunting and delves into the recorded histories of Australian butterflies, starting with the observations of Joseph Banks on board the Endeavour. As well as relating stories associated with his favourite photographs, Derek will be sharing some of the secrets on just how and where to find interesting butterflies right here in Perth.
