Most Helpful Customer Reviews

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jack Holloway on September 8, 2008
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Basics: 2008, softcover, 88 pages, 153 color photos of 141 species, no range maps

This is another addition to the Wild West nature series. This book is an introduction to 141 (just under half) of the 300+ plus butterflies found in the southwest US. This photo guide gives a sampling of the species for the person with a casual or beginning interest in butterflies.

One relatively small photograph shows each butterfly, with about a dozen specimens shown with two photos. All the photos are good quality with sharp focus and vivid colors; however, there are a couple of quirks. Some butterflies (e.g., White-barred Skipper) blend into their dark backgrounds making them slightly difficult to see. The large Monarch is illustrated to be smaller on the page than the normally diminutive skippers.

One paragraph discusses each butterfly. The primary focus is on general life history aspects such as habitat preference, interesting behaviors, or seasonal presence. Only the briefest of descriptions are given to some of the species. No range maps are supplied.

This book is definitely not an identification guide and, to be fair, it does not claim to be one. This book is designed to appeal to those people looking for a more general overview or who may want to see a less overwhelming number of butterflies as they begin to learn them.
