5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Britain
In a short time, I've learnt to ID Britain's butterflies with only this book and a pair of close-focusing binoculars - it's all you need.

Handy little book that lists most, if not all butterflies in the UK with illustrations. Explains the complete life cycle of butterflies and includes illustrations of the caterpillars, eggs and chrysalis.
Now I just have to find a similar book for moths..

A handy little book for taking out and about on walks - fits nicely into my coat pocket or bag alongside my lightweight binoculars. Has just the right level of detail I want as an amateur spotter, and the illustrations are very pretty.

Good coverage of butterflies of GB and Ireland. Clear text and life size illustrations. Much better than the Dorling Kindersley guide which has miniscule text.

A little book you can take to the meadow and match the butterflies to the pictures while the dog is chasing them through the grass.

An excellent guide. It's best aspect being the life size illustrations but also the fairly basic information given. I like it.
