Butterflies of the World
by Gilles Martin
Publisher's Description
Butterflies are among the planet's most majestic creatures, their delicate forms sprinkled with brilliant color and rich with texture. More than 200,000 kinds of butterfly and caterpillar have been spotted around the world-that's one in every ten insects. Photographer Gilles Martin brings this extraordinary slice of nature to the page in this gorgeous volume. Martin captures butterflies in spectacular images, while photographs of caterpillars and their metamorphoses invite readers to explore the vast diversity of the species. The pictures are complemented by text from animal behaviorist and nature expert Myriam Baran, who tells would-be lepidopterists everything they need to know about these animals. From the recognizable Monarch to lesser-known types, Butterflies of the World gives readers an all-around look at this magnificent insect.
