This treasury of detailed, accurately rendered illustrations (including two double-page spreads) invites coloring book enthusiasts to bring over 40 species of butterflies to life in vivid color.

Fact-filled captions provide information about each species' coloration, range, habitat, special characteristics, and more. All are shown in full color on the covers. An excellent source of nature illustrations for artists and craftspeople, this delightful coloring book can also be used as an accurate, inexpensive nature identification guide.
