DGDavid Geale has led nature (especially birdwatching) tours in the Neotropics since 2001, but began specializing in butterflies in 2011. Since that time he has become one of the most prolific photographers of wild butterflies in the Andean countries especially, where he has led more butterfly photography tours than anyone else over that time period.

Learning from local enthusiasts and through much experimentation, he has become recognized as an expert in various baiting techniques – which is the key to making butterflies accessible and cooperative for cameras!

Groups are always impressed with his helpfulness and knowledge in identifying the day’s butterflies during evening “ID sessions” and these have become a notable and popular fixture during his tours.

David will be leading our exciting new butterfly tour to Ecuador in November 2019!
