Description

Butterflies are the poster children of the insect world. They suggest warm, sunny days filled with beautiful flowers. Today a large and growing interest in anything to do with butterflies can be seen in such diverse areas as jewelry, clothes, live butterfly releases at weddings, advertisements, festivals, home butterfly gardens, and specialty tours and field trips. In addition, many museums, zoos, and private organizations have opened walk-through butterfly gardens with free-flying butterflies imported from all over the world. (Taken from the introduction to An Introduction to Southern California Butterflies.)



More than 250 glorious color photographs fill this guide to these beautiful bugs, enabling the reader to identify the 89 species of Southern California butterflies, along with their favorite habitats and food plants. Includes information on butterfly classification, life cycle, and behavior, butterfly watching, creating a garden to attract butterflies, and protecting habitat and endangered species. Also contains a species checklist for recording butterfly sightings. Everyone from the novice to the seasoned butterfly enthusiast will find this book useful and enjoyable.
