About this product

Butterflies in Close-up was shot by CineButterflies in 2001, during a 3-week stay on the Reserves along the Rio Grande, on the US border with Mexico.

The area is well-known for its late-summer flowering of Eupatorium, the purple flower known also as Boneset, in the Aster family, Asteraceae, which attracts many species of butterflies. Many North American and a few global species are joined by Central American species and others from as far south as Peru, Brazil and Argentina – a unique mingling of the Nearctic and Neotropical Regions' populations, along with world migrants like the Painted Lady, the American Lady and the Red Admiral. The film gives you a vivid account of the wealth and variety of butterflies to be seen there, in a small area, in a very varied range of Reserves, in September-October.

"A delight to watch, and a fascinating insight into the diversity of the marvellous butterflies of Southern Texas"
- Sir David Attenborough
