Compact enough for use in the field, the guide also includes tips on butterfly watching, photography, gardening, and more.* Discusses and identifies more than 130 species* Species accounts include information on identifying butterflies through behavior, markings, and host plants* Beautiful full-color plates illustrate top and bottom views of wings for easier identification* Includes a species checklist and a glossary
