 The images in these galleries are organized taxonomically, according to family, subfamily, and species. Clicking on the links above will bring you to a page for the corresponding butterfly family.  On these family pages you'll find thumbnails for each species which provide access to the corresponding species pages.  On each of these species pages you'll find a selection of images, and a link to the corresponding Butterflies of Canada page which provides descriptive information. 

These galleries include all the species you are likely to see in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, with the exception of a few infrequent migrants ( see Not-quite-local species page ).   The species lists are derived from a number of sources listed on the references page.
