This is an extraordinary photographic portrait of the world's butterflies and moths from Swiss photographer Thomas Marent. From a butterfly's first struggle to free itself from the chrysalis and take flight, to the life-and-death dramas of courtship, reproduction, protection and defence, Thomas Marent's outstanding photography is a celebration of these remarkable creatures and a extraordinary portrait of some of the 165,000 species spread over almost every region of the world. Accompanying more than 500 photographs of butterflies and moths, Thomas shares his personal experiences of studying these insects in their natural habitats, resulting in a book that will open your eyes to the wonders of life on the wing.

I brought this book a good few weeks ago.

I am a great lover of Butterflies and Wildlife and I also like to paint. This book is perfect for artists who like to draw or paint butterflies.

But its also very interesting and informative. It's not only full of hundreds of butterflies, Thomas Marent has explained and described each one either briefly or in depth.

I have looked at a lot of different buttefly books but hadn't found the best one for what I was wanting. I wasn't wanting a small book, nor one filled with butterfly "drawings", not one that dragged on and on...but this one fitted the bill perfectly.

Its expensive, but worth it. There is not one single drawing, they are all photo's and his descriptions are spot on. I definately recommend this one.
