    Great considering its size For a book with the “footprint” of a postcard, this guide has a boatload of useful information and truly superb photos. The descriptions are brief but highlight a few interesting facts about each species; all contain basic entries about identification, habitat, range, and life cycles. Each entry is accompanied by a gorgeous full color photo of the butterfly viewed from above and a smaller side view (the latter are so small that their usefulness is somewhat compromised, but they’re better than nothing). No photos of the caterpillars.

    Butterfly book rating This book was a gift for my 7 yr old granddaugter. We have lots of butterflies and she loves to try to identify them. The book has awesome color photos. The small pocket size makes it convenient to carry around with you. I have found all of the Audubon books to be very very good investments. Thanks
