Features:
- Interviews with the author highlighting the changes to the environment over the last 30 years and how the butterfly population reflects this.

- Review of the place of butterflies in history.

Customer Reviews:

Jewels in the Air
by Barbara in the United Kingdom (17/11/2012)

I purchased this hoping that it would help me to improve my ability to identify butterflies in flight, but the quality of the moving pictures, although digitally remastered from hand-held super8 film I considered to be so poor as to be of little use. There is a lot of other information, but I would not recommend it to learn about or to enjoy butterflies in flight.
