"I started with snakes.... Well, then I had to learn what snakes eat, so I got into frogs. Well, when you get into frogs you get into plants and then some pretty flowers. And then if you watch flowers long enough you'll see a butterfly. It drove me crazy; I had to know what kind of butterfly it was." — Rudy Mancke
