Overview Describes the habitat, behavior, range, and developmental stages of native butterflies, native skippers, and migrating tropical butterflies
Publishers Description Butterflies are among the natural world's most colorful and intriguing creatures, so what could be more useful than a handy field guide with more than 1,000 photographs of all the butterflies of North America north of Mexico, including all true butterflies, the most common skippers, and many migrants and strays. The color plates are visually arranged by shape and color, and thumb-tab silhouettes provide a convenient index to identification of butterflies in the field.

Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Butterflies?
Very informative book. Great pictures. Dec 13, 2007
I bought this book after I found my patch of parsley in my herb garden being eaten by an anonymous caterpillar. I intended to use it as a reference tool to determine what caterpillars were eating my plants, to see if they were butterflies or moths and what other plants I had to keep an eye on. This book is very detailed. It describes the diet and habitat of many different caterpillars and shows you pictures of the egg, caterpillar, pupa and fully developed insect. Within days I had discovered everything I needed to know about the offending caterpillar. I had so much information that I caught the offender and managed to keep in captivity until it reached it's butterfly stage and was released back into the yard. I decided to buy another copy of this for a family member who is a professional gardener and collects/raises butterflies that she finds in her clients gardens. I was surprised by the level of detail and amount of information that is presented in this book.
Easy, Speedy Butterfly ID Oct 16, 2007
In Florida the butterflies are bountiful, greatly varied, and sometimes exotic. This wonderful layout and presentation of specific information has truly increased my enjoyment of our landscaping/gardening. Plus the book's size and vinyl cover work well on the lanai's small table!
Excellent Butterfly Guide! Sep 8, 2007
The book is so incredibly helpful. We had a butterfly festival at our community garden, and within a few minutes I was able to name all the butterflies we'd seen. I highly recommend this guidebook to anyone who's interested in butterfly watching.
Great field guide! Aug 21, 2007
Though it took a bit longer than expected to arrive, i am very pleased. The color photos are great. Some times I wish it had the little map of the US to show the range of the butterflies, but this is not a big deal. Over all a great field guide.
We are so pleased Aug 10, 2007
The book is a wealth of information that we wanted, the ordering and delivery could not of been better.
