"I purchased this book for a gift to a "lover of butterflies" and am definitely impressed with the quality, size and stunning photographs. It is very informative and a real pleasure to read as you learn about all of these wonderful creatures. I definitely recommend this book and gifts in general from Smithsonian - they are outstanding and not "run of the mill." I hope to buy another copy of this book soon as a gift ."
