There are 59 species of British butterfly and each one deserves a couple of stunning photographs, some interesting facts about its life cycle and a poem dedicated to it.
Lifelong butterfly lover and poet Jonathan Bradley and photographer Yealand Kalfayan pay tribute to each of Britain's indigenous butterflies in this colourful and inspiring book.
Each one has its own original poem, evoking both the fascinating lives of these lovely creatures and the emotions that they can arouse in us. The stories are told that lie behind their often exotic or mysterious names, and the reader is taken on a charming journey of discovery through the British countryside in pursuit of Skippers, Admirals, Dukes and Emperors.
Bradley has also included a mini-biography of several famous lepidopterists who have left their mark on this radiant world.
