This book is for those people who want to see more butterflies fluttering into their backyards.
The life cycle of 32 common Australian butterflies are featured here, together with the names of the plants on which they like to feed. There are practical ways of turning any garden, large or small, formal or informal, country or suburban, into a butterfly garden. By carefully planning your planting, you can persuade these delightful creatures to take up residence with you. This edition has been fully revised and updated, including new species and distribution maps. Stunning photographs will help you identify not only the butterflies themselves but also the caterpillars and sometimes even their eggs and pupae.
