This field guide to Indiana's rich butterfly fauna covers all 149 species of butterflies and their close relatives, the skippers. Over 500 color photographs illustrate the undersides and uppersides of most species and highlight the variations found among them, both seasonally and between males and females. For beginners and experts, Butterflies of Indiana also offers an introduction to the natural history of butterflies. The simple and intuitive design of this guide and its wealth of features make it a faithful companion for butterfly watchers, collectors, gardeners, birders, and naturalists.This unique effort is the most complete guide to butterfly watching I've ever seen-with visual identification keys that a true novice can follow, supplemented with accurate status updates, distribution maps and abundance and seasonal graphs. If these were all it included, it would be an admirable accomplishment-but there are another 150 pages devoted to butterfly life history, habitats, conservation, habitat management, gardening, photography, collecting, watching and more. This is the complete guide to the appreciation of Indiana's butterflies.
