An account of one man's discovery if a fascinating world that exists all around us, on city rooftops and in wild, untouched meadows, in suburban gardens and on the lonely tundra of the arctic. The author, an artist, combined the eye of an artist with the careful observation and notation of a naturalist and this unique record, a butterfly diary of his chosen area, forms the groundwork of his book. A field guide for the observer, this title discusses: social life and behavior, scent, colonies and territories, relationships with other insects, death and predation, hibernation, etc.
