Publisher Comments:

Butterflies are among natures most beautiful creatures, and these 250 extraordinary photographs by Dr. Jeffrey Glassberg—president of the North American Butterfly Association, editor of American Butterflies magazine, and best-selling author—display them in all their colorful glory. Taken in diverse locations, including the United States, Mexico, and Europe, all the images feature unrestrained butterflies, free in the wild: this distinguishes the photos from those in many calendars and elsewhere that show captured butterflies, cooled on ice, and placed on flowers they would not normally visit. The species featured include the Eurema Pyro, photographed in the Dominican Republic; Melania Pixe, the US; and Rhetus Arcius, Mexico. Glassberg also provides a valuable index indicating each butterflys English and Latin name, and the place where it originates.
