Great reference book for nature enthusiasts and artists. I use it for identification purposes and to get ideas for b-fly shapes and patterns. It's also just fun to flip through. As you look at the pictures, you get a feel for related groups of b-flies, so when you are out in the field, you may realize you're looking at a crescentspot or a checkerspot without knowing exactly which one. Host and nectar sources are also listed. The nectar sources help with ID.

It does a great job of introducing butterfly facts and then an awesome directory with the right amount of information to identify eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis and butterflies by size, geographical location, colors, host plants and nectar plants. The only improvement would be to have a one page summary of the sections of the directory so that I can glance at that page and then know where to turn.
