    A great book
    A really useful book for the amateur enthusiast. All species are shown actual size on the page, with images of top and under wings, open and closed. Lots if useful info about where and when to find them and characteristics to help ID them. We found it invaluable on our holiday and it helped us find purple emperors. A great buy!
