Butterflies North Fife

Here at Flisk North Fife on sunny days Peacock Butterflies abound at the moment, very much on the increase over previous years.
Covering the whole of Europe and North Africa, written by one of Europe's leading lepidopterists, and illustrated by one of the world's leading butterfly illustrators, this superb field guide is the perfect reference for those wanting to discover more about butterflies themselves. In all 440 species are covered, with each species fully illustrated with paintings of the male, female and all major forms, varieties and sub-species. Distribution maps accompany every widespread species and all the information for the book has been researched from original sources. The text covers all taxonomic nomenclature, distribution, flight period and variation, life cycle, food plants, conservation and uniquely, habitat and behaviour. An essential guide.
