Packed with the stunning photography of Chris Manley, this new photographic guide is the perfect guide to Britain's moths and butterflies. Its coverage is broad, including all of the 800 or so macro-moths (within which the butterflies are placed), including all vagrants, and many of the micros, along with some 300 types of caterpillars. The authoritative text provides important information on identification, size and larval food plant for each species, with introductory sections detailing habitats, life cycles, conservation, and trapping and photographic techniques. With many people now setting up their own backyard moth traps or interested to know which species are fluttering around their light bulbs, this book provides a superb introduction to this fascinating insect group.
