Each butterfly was photographed against a black background which brings its beauty out quite clear. You can see even the transparency of the wings in some of the butterflies. The book also has an index on page 127 that has the common and official names for each butterfly.
I also liked that every few pages, the author adds some words written about butterflies that tie in quiet nicely with the book. My favorite one was on page 107 by Hans Christian Adersen, from "The Butterfly"
"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly, "one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower for a companion."
This is a great coffee table book for those who love nature and photography.Thanks to Hachette for the opportunity to review this book.
