Learn to identify the butterflies you see, and find out what to plant in your garden so they visit you at home!

Butterflies are likely the most popular insects in the entire insect class. With their large, brightly colored wings and beneficial pollinator roles in the ecosystem, it''s no wonder they have such a big fan base amongst their human observers. But for anyone who''s ever wondered which exact butterfly it is that they''re admiring, there''s a new resource with all the answers: theButterflies Backyard Guide.

Replete with more than fifty of the most common butterflies in North America, the book is a fully illustrated guide that makes it easy to identify these fragile winged insects. Each butterfly in the book is presented on a two-page spread with images and facts about the butterfly, as well as tips for what gardeners can plant in order to attract that particular butterfly to visit their backyards. Other information provided for each butterfly includes: size, lifespan, habitat, diet, range, predators, and reproduction.Butterflies Backyard Guideis organized by major butterfly type, so readers can easily flip open the guide and zero in on the facts about the specific butterfly they''re identifying.

Keep this guide close at hand for a quick analysis of the iridescent butterflies you see floating from flower to flower. You''ll be pointing out Monarchs, Eastern Tiger Swallowtails, and Common Buckeyes before you know it.
