I'm a Butterfly Guy!


I sing about butterflies and rear Monarch and Swallowtail butterflies.

I am becoming known for rearing and singing about butterflies and I have a butterfly shirt to complete my image. I rear Monarch and Swallowtail butterflies, with as many as four generations in a year, and at least 30 butterflies making it to adult form from the caterpillars they were each time. I grow Milkweed for the Monarchs and Rue for the Swallowtails and the female butterflies come back to the garden because they know they can find the plants they need to lay their eggs on.

My song Butterfly In My Beard tells the story of when I had one of the insects in my facial hair and the second verse describes how I was once called "Bugman" in the South Wales Echo in a story about how I was keeping exotic insects. There is a video too and you can watch me singing and dancing!
