🌿Maria Sibylla Merian, 17th century naturalist and illustrator

Born in 1647, she was self taught, amazingly “Botanical”, presciently aware of the symbiotic relationship between plants and insects and in particular plants, caterpillars, moths and butterflies.  She published a two-volume series on caterpillars, and later another on insects of Suriname.
