Description

This treasury of detailed, accurately rendered illustrations (including two double-page spreads) invites coloring book enthusiasts to bring over 40 species of butterflies to life in vivid color. Here are such delicately beautiful creatures as the black, salmon-orange, white and blue painted lady, the rapid-flying dogface butterfly, with wing markings that look like a poodle's profile, and a host of others: pipevine swallowtail, monarch, buckeye, white admiral, olive hairstreak, Milbert's tortoiseshell, great spangled fritillary, ruddy daggerwing, fiery skipper, mourning cloak, tiger swallowtail, red admiral, and many more, all of them found in the United States or Canada.
Fact-filled captions provide information about each species' coloration, range, habitat, special characteristics, and more. All are shown in full color on the covers. An excellent source of nature illustrations for artists and craftspeople, this delightful coloring book can also be used as an accurate, inexpensive nature identification guide.
