Weird Butterflies and Moths

There are more than 200,000 species of butterflies and moths. Many, in fact, are still uncategorized. This fascinating book reveals a rare and close up look at the odd beauty and behavior of some of the strangest of these tiny creatures. Despite their large numbers, the world of these particularly weird insects exists largely hidden from our view. Included in the book are some of the most interesting species from North and South America, Europe, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand and beyond. Readers will be introduced into the world of the butterfly with images demonstrating how these paper-thin winged miracles of nature adapt and survive against all odds, which include predators, weather and humanity's willful destruction of habitat.


Ronald Orenstein is a zoologist in Toronto.

Thomas Marent is a Swiss photographer whose titles include Butterflies (also with Ron Orenstein).
