The Complete Book of North American ButterfliesBook - 2011
Discover the many amazing butterfly breeds. This book includes an entire chapter devoted to the resilient migrating Monarch. With its vibrant orange and black markings, it is possibly the most recognizable of all butterflies. The book also features all state butterflies like Maryland's Baltimore Checkersport, the California Dogface Butterfly, the Spicebush Swallowtail of Mississippi, and then explores the phenomenon of mimicry, a survival mechanism butterflies use to trick predators into thinking they are inedible--or perhaps an entirely different organism all together.
