This superb visual resource profiles some of the world's best-loved and most intriguing butterflies, moths and skippers, with a geographically-split directory of 600 detailed entries, each containing useful identification summaries and quick-reference panels on distribution, habitat, food, wingspan and status. The majority of species are shown in colour artworks, from full-body illustrations to drawings depicting detail such as the pattern on the reverse side of the wings or unusual markings and pupae. A superb photographic reference section covers the life cycle of these creatures, and for those who want to get closer, there are tips on how to attract moths and butterflies to your own backyard, the type of species you are likely to see in nearby habitats, and take part in conserving species at local level.
