Perhaps the most incredible feat of all is the 2,000 mile migration of the monarch butterfly. Once a year millions of a special long-living generation of Monarchs migrate from the north-eastern United States and southern Canada to the Oyamel fir forests of Mexico, where they survive the winter. But then, as soon as they feel the first warmth of spring they all set out on the return journey through the Rio Grande and Texas, procreating on the way, until the second and third generations arrive back at the Great Lakes to start the cycle all over again. Award-winning nature photographer Ingo Arndt has followed them on their journey while the accompanying informative text by Claus-Peter Lieckfeld and Peter Huemer explains the latest research on the migration and describes in detail the transformation from caterpillar to magnificently colored butterfly. But this is not the only wonder in the world of butterflies, a world full of surprises. There are butterflies that are masters of disguise and others that are imposters or that mimic their poisonous relatives to protect themselves from predators. Ingo Arndt has photographed them all and in so doing has created a beautiful record of the butterflies themselves, their existence, habits and life cycle. A fitting tribute to this extraordinary species.

Reviews

"Let me start by saying that this is simply one of the most beautifully illustrated books about butterflies that I've come across for many years...The 100 or so photographs in the book are simply breathtaking - not only in terms of the technical quality which is beyond reproach, but equally in terms of composition and originality." --learnaboutbutterflies.com
