All of the writing, image selections, design and proofing has been finished and my new butterflies book is off to the printers. The expected release date is October 2020, but I will keep you posted.
This is the latest book in the Australian 'Naturalist's Guide' series that I have worked on, and the seventh in the last 3 years. The wonderfully talented Rachel Whitlock was my co-author again, and it was such a pleasure to work with her a second time.
This book is an easy-to-use identification guide to 301 species/genera of Australian butterflies. As with other books in the series, it features high quality photographs from some of Australia’s (and some international) top nature photographers. Each of these are accompanied by detailed species descriptions, which include nomenclature, size, distribution, habitat and habits. The introduction covers the rise of the butterflies, pests and pollinators, life cycles and illustrations.
The book also includes a checklist of all described butterflies. You can read more about this title on my books page and copies of this and other titles I have worked on in the Naturalist's Guide series are available from my online store.
