new Butterfly book
- Hi all,
I know that most of us are also interested in the other critters in our
natural world, and esp. butterflies, so I wanted to share about the
absolutely fabulous new bfly book that just came out this spring:
Butterflies of Anza-Borrego State Park & Environs
& their Favorite Flowering Plants
Its title lists AB State Park, but the book should be useful in many
many other places. It not only contains good (fairly large) photographs
of all the species with wings open and closed, but shows their
caterpillars, eggs and often the host plants as well. In the back cover
their is a pocket with a butterfly checklist
This wonderful guide is written by Lynn & Gene Monroe who have been
sending me dfly sightings from AB Park for several years now.
You can learn more about the book at http://www.graniteridgenature.com/
The website has 2 insect photo galleries and the CO. one even has a
pale snaketail (female) photo at the bottom.
Anyway, I heartily recommend this book to anyone who at least travels
into southern CA.
Thanks for a great book Lynn!
