Small Copper Butterfly North Fife

Small Copper Butterfly at rest on a Comfrey leaf today. Over the last week or two this has been the most prevalent butterfly following Orange tips, I anticipate a good showing of Common Blues soon.

The Butterflies of Britain and Ireland [Hardcover]
Jeremy Thomas (Author), Richard Lewington (Illustrator)
This is probably the best butterfly book of them all: sumptuous, readable and marvellously complete. . . I don't want to overpraise it, but it's perfect, sometimes anecdotal, and packed with the right information. --Simon Barnes, The Times

For me, this is still the best butterfly book ever written and a `must have' for every serious butterfly enthusiast. --Martin Warren, Chief Executive, Butterfly Conservation

Britain's best-loved butterfly book -- Michael McCarthy, The Independent

. . what promises to be our best butterfly book for 20 years, by our top expert Professor Jeremy Thomas and acclaimed butterfly artist, Richard Lewington --Peter Marren, The Weekend Telegraph

There are many books on British butterflies, but this is the ultimate butterfly handbook, with all the detail one could possibly want. . . . Richard Lewington's illustrations are absolutely astounding. How can anyone paint so well?
--Steve Gantlett, Birding World
