A Photographic Guide to British Moths and Butterflies by Chris Manley,
This review is from: British Moths and Butterflies: A Photographic Guide (Paperback)
This book is a magnificent accomplishment. Not only has Manley made a tremendous contribution with his own beautiful photographs of many of the species ilustrated, sometimes (and helpfully) with more than one shot of a species, but he has also included a wide coverage of first class photographs from an impressive array of other gifted photographers. The 500 Microlepidoptera illustrations will be a big help to those struggling with identification problems in this difficult area. It supplements the excellent help available on the Web from UKMoths, UKLepidoptera, several excellent county websites and lepiforum.de, and will be near at hand beside the books by Skinner, Waring et al, Brooks and Goater whenever our Moth trap is checked.
