This simple regional field guide is customized for southern Ontario, so you can quickly identify and find life cycle images of the butterflies you’re most likely to encounter in your garden, your neighbourhood and in area parks.
What makes this book unique, is that it only includes 31 commonly seen species, filtering out the more unlikely of the ~170 butterflies recorded in Ontario.
This is the book for people who love butterflies, but find exhaustive field guides overwhelming.
As an extra feature, there are conspicuous moth and moth caterpillar galleries to help you with some of the beautiful, butterfly-like moths you’re likely to encounter. Moths are easily confused with butterflies, yet they’re not found in those comprehensive butterfly guides.
There's also an extensive glossary to help readers understand entomological “buzz-words” and concepts.
