Feinstein has captured the beauty and brilliance of these ornate insects and reproduced it in a oversized format, allowing us to appreciate the details.

I love the photographic work of Harold Feinstein. I use his books with my preschool students, who pour over the photographs, making observations and asking questions that might not arise if they couldn't view Feinstein's specimens in isolation of their natural contexts. This text is a fantastic addition to my classroom library and I love that each image includes information on each image's common and scientific names, as well as their region of origin.

This is such a gorgeous books. My mom is obsessed with butterflies so I knew that she would show great appreciation for this book. Once I gave it to her, we both sat down and flipped through the pages. This is one of the most gorgeous books I've ever flipped through.
