About this book

The second in a series of state guides to butterfly-watching, Finding Butterflies in Arizona will appeal equally to those who simply enjoy these beautiful insects and to the serious observer who keeps a life list. With 334 species of butterflies reported, Arizona ranks second only to Texas, and like Texas, its proximity to Mexico brings the prospect of exotic butterflies not readily seen elsewhere in the United States.

Thirty-five sites are divided among seven regions and each site includes a map and concise driving directions to recommended stops. Travelers will appreciate notes on the nearest food, gas, camping, and lodging. The authors give a species-by-species account of Arizona's butterflies, with recommendations for the best places to find them. They also provide a month-by-month guide to the best places to find butterflies throughout the year. Winter-weary visitors to Arizona will find butterflies even in December and January! A full checklist of the butterflies of Arizona is included as an appendix.
