This wonderfully illustrated book is essentially a photographic guide to the butterflies of the world. The 1000 species chosen for inclusion are those most likely to be noticed by the average person, either because they are conspicuously coloured, or because they are particularly common in the part of the world where they occur. Each stunning image shows the butterfly in its natural surroundings, and is accompanied by useful text on identification, interesting features and geographical distribution. "1000 Butterflies" is the perfect companion to the author's first title "Butterflies of the World" with 432 pages, over 1000 colour photographs . GBP 19.95 available from 25th August 2016 from all good bookshops.
