Is that really your name ?
YES.... it is my real name.
A few years ago someone with great insight told me that I would transform like a butterfly, start to spread my wings and undertake new ventures... They could see me writing a book one day !!!
A book - I don't think so... it was the last thing I could ever imagine myself doing - as for transforming into a butterfly ...! well my parents did name me after a butterfly. The Painted Lady - Vanessa kershawi. (pictured on the header)
Having named me Vanessa, who could have imagined that I would marry a 'Bugg', and write a book about butterflies!
So with great surprise and spreading of wings I found myself publishing a book on butterflies !
Having grown up with a butterfly enthusiast, I took butterflies for granted, it wasn’t until I started putting this book together that I really appreciated how fascinating these creature are. I was also surprised to discover how much is still unknown about these little guys.
