[See below, the photos have been improved since this review, but I'm leaving it intact - complete with a possible error re Amazon fees - below because other people's comments refer to it. This review was three stars originally, now four.]

Everything's wonderful except...

The author opted for very heavy photo compression that badly affects their work. Sharp focus becomes fuzzy and noticeable artifacts from extreme compression are visible in plenty of the photos.

I can understand the reason for this - Amazon does charge authors for large downloads in some circumstances. But this isn't a long book and such severe compression makes the images unpleasant to view. I won't be opening up this book again (unless the photos are replaced.) Pity, 'cause so much is so right, here.

Amazon could probably stand to review its fee structures, if this is the result.

This book contains an awesome collection of butterfly photos with great captions which combine the names of the butterflies along with quotes and poems.. Loved the variety of butterlies and flowers contained in the photos!

What a beautiful photo book. In Flowers With Wings (Kindle Edition) you will find 26 beautiful photos of butterflies, each with it's own inspirational quote about butterflies. I personally love butterflies and am a huge fan of quotes, so I was blown away with this opportunity to review a book about two of my favorite things. The most calming and peaceful things in the world, butterflies are very majestic, is it any wonder fairies have butterfly wings?

Butterflies truly are beautiful creatures and that beauty is captured time and time again throughout the 28 pages of this eBook.

My favorite quote from the book is
Happiness is a butterfly,
which when pursued,
is always just beyond your grasp,
but which, if you will sit down quietly,
may alight upon you.
~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, 1804-1864 ~

Remarkable, beauty and serenity can be found upon the wings of a butterfly. Deborah and Vinny did a great job capturing the butterfly in these natural photos. Job well done, I can't wait for more in this series!

Flowers With Wings (Butterfly Photographs Coffee Table Books for Kindle) When I was a teenager, I used to draw butterflies all over my books and notebooks at school. I'd write "Butterflies are free!" everywhere as my anthem to free spirited living! This book embodies all those thoughts common in young girls who love both beauty and freedom. It is a perfect gift for all butterfly lovers with a touch of literature under each breathtaking image. Enjoy!

This is a wonderful collection of beautiful photos with inspiring quotes! Deborah and Vinny have not only taken some gorgeous photographs in this book, but paired them aptly with the quotes in the book. A lovely short read for to take some "me" time out of a busy day and enjoy nature via their delightful collection!

I would have loved to see even more photos, but I do understand that this was the first in a series!

I love photography books, because the images inspire my photography, I love the photography tips, and some of the best books (in my opinion) have a story behind the images.

The Flowers With Wings digital photography ebook by Deborah Carney and Vinny O'Hare is a peaceful book that I found myself flipping through slowly. It's perfect for someone who loves butterflies and at $4.99, it's an affordable gift and stocking stuffer. What I love about the book is that it inspired an addition to my Photography Bucket List. I caught a portion of a documentary about the Monarch Butterflies and thought it would be amazing to capture a portion of their migration in South America. Until I get my act together and get my passport, I think I'll visit a local butterfly exhibit and see what I can capture.

Flowers With Wings is fantastic for butterfly lovers and poetry lovers. This isn't a how to photography book sharing tips on photographing butterflies, but the images are gorgeous and before I was halfway through, I was planning a trip to a butterfly exhibit.

I searched online for seasonal butterfly exhibits around the US and Canada so that you can plan a visit too. I'm not certain how complete or current this list is, but at least you have a start; visit my site for the list: [...]. So, what's on your Photography Bucket List?

I had no idea of the number of different types of butterflies until I read Flowers with Wings -- A Collection of Butterfly Photos from NightFire Publications. Sure, I realized there were several. But some of the varieties are unbelievably intricate and unusual. For instance, the Indian Leaf Butterfly, when it's wings are closed, looks like... well, a leaf. But when it opens its wings, you see this gorgeous, iridescent blue and gold and purple winged creature that is absolutely stunning. The change is incredible!

If you like butterflies or just colorful photos, you'll thoroughly enjoy this ebook. It would actually do well as a coffee table book with all its bright colored photographs and short verses and quotes relating to butterflies. I've browsed through many coffee table books that couldn't compare for quality and interest.

Flowers with Wings is aptly subtitled, A Collection of Butterfly Photos. Each photo is of a different type of butterfly, each in a natural setting and each featuring a short verse or quote that makes the book just that much more enjoyable. While Flowers with Wings doesn't include the Monarch or what I call a "yellow butterfly" - though I have no idea what it's really called - the book includes more unusual varieties and those you've probably never seen.

For instance, you can view the Malachite Butterfly with its sea foam green and pearly wings, the Orange Tiger Butterfly with its orange and black tiger stripes, or the Paperkite or Rice Paper Butterfly which is said to be the largest butterfly and which is absolutely beautiful. As they all are.

A quote by Robert Frost describes these small creatures well... "Butterflies...flowers that fly and all but sing." If you appreciate God's creativity and photographic beauty, you'll be fascinated with Flowers with Wings. I was. And I'm not the biggest fan of butterflies there is.
