This film was shot in butterfly-rich Hungary and in the alpine region of Slovenia. The resulting footage has been acquired with much patience, taking two years to complete, by a dedicated film-maker able to live among butterflies. The DVD contains unique, high-quality footage of behaviour never previously filmed. Moreover, it incorporates the latest scientific knowledge of nectaring, mate location, courtship, mud-puddling and mating.
As well as sights that would be familiar in the British Isles, the DVD includes real treats that only a trip to the continent can provide. To see literally hundreds of butterflies nectaring and mud-puddling is quite breathtaking and I have to say that the DVD brought back many fond memories of my trip to this wonderful part of Europe. The DVD is organised around several topics which weave a wonderful story from start to finish, rather than coming across as a series of unrelated material. .... Rob's story concludes by stating that we still have much to learn - one of the reasons that he spends so much time in the field. And this is, clearly, a passion that he enjoys immensely and his enthusiasm and love of butterflies comes across in this wonderful production. All in all, this is a beautiful piece of work and belongs in the DVD library of anyone wanting to better-understand the life of butterflies, or who simply enjoys watching a high-quality DVD on their favourite subject! --Peter Eeles, UK Butterflies.
