This is an extraordinary photographic portrait of the world's butterflies and moths from Swiss photographer Thomas Marent. From a butterfly's first struggle to free itself from the chrysalis and take flight, to the life-and-death dramas of courtship, reproduction, protection and defence, Thomas Marent's outstanding photography is a celebration of these remarkable creatures and a extraordinary portrait of some of the 165,000 species spread over almost every region of the world.
Accompanying more than 500 photographs of butterflies and moths, Thomas shares his personal experiences of studying these insects in their natural habitats, resulting in a book that will open your eyes to the wonders of life on the wing.
