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.

Описание: Excerpt from An Illustrated Natural History of British Butterflies and Moths Once a worm, a thing that crept On the bare earth, then wrought a tomb and slept. In this state of worm or caterpillar, Butterﬂies of many kinds are most easy to obtain: to my notion, an umbrella and. A walking-stick are the best implements. Spread the umbrella; turn it upside down; hold it under a shrub, a bunch of nettles, or the bough of a tree: thrash the foliage with your walking-stick, and caterpillars without number will fall into the umbrella: pick them up, put them. In tin boxes, and take them home. They will not all produce Butterﬂies; many of them moths but whether caterpillars of moths or Butterﬂies, they are all worth keeping. Caterpillars being mostly eaters of vegetable matter, there is no difficulty in providing and renewing the plants upon which they feed. A garden pot, half filled with loose, sandy earth, with a few pieces of cane bent over, and the ends inserted in the pot this frame covered with gauze, and a string passed over it below the mouth of the pot, forms a very good cage for caterpillars. A slip of the food-plant should be'first placed in a phial of water and put in the centre of the cage, which should be kept in a shady place. According to the size of the caterpillars, and ithe heat of the weather, the food will require to be renewed from time to time. These instructions are copied from the World of Insects, by J. W. Douglas, and others, more minute, elaborate, and complete, will be found in that excellent little book, The insect-hunter's Companion, by the Rev. Joseph Greene. I would most willingly quote pages from this last-named work, which is published by Mr. Van Voorst at 1s. 6d. But I imagine that every collector of insects must of necessity purchase the book itself, and it would be useless to possess the same information in two forms. Treated in accordance with Mr. Greene's instructions, and carefully watched from time to time, the caterpillar will soon grow to its full size, will fix itself to the pot, the muslin, the leaves, or the twigs, and then turn to a chrysalis, and subsequently to a Butterﬂy, in the manner which I have fully described at page 14.

Описание: Excerpt from An Illustrated Natural History of British Butterflies and Moths My work is completed. I am bound to commend it to the "benevolent reader" in the good old-fashioned, time-honoured style. Fettered by usage, equally old-fashioned, equally time-honoured, I am induced to place this commendation in front, although I entirely agree with the sentiment that has induced some writers truthfully to place their preface as written, at the end, when all the rest was complete. This act of authorship is generally regarded as facetious - a very mild Joke certainly, but a joke nevertheless. I cannot understand this: I cannot perceive why an author should be ashamed or afraid to make the public confession that his valedictory address was given forth after his long companionship with the reader had ceased. I cannot conceive why such an obvious truism should be thought droll. Be this as it may, one thing is certain: an author is held to be something less than courteous who does not commend his labours to the public in some way or other, even though he may have nothing to say by way of commendation: so I bow to custom and commence my task. Would that I could adopt the stereo-form of prefaces, and plead the pressing solicitations of a large circle of admiring friends as the lever that enforced publication; but I feel that such a plea would be untruthful. I have been submitted to no such pressure: I have been lifted out of my normal obscurity by no such lever. Friends such as these have held aloof in the coolest and most unconcerned manner. I am left without excuse. First, then, I would invite attention to the fact, again noticed farther on, that I had a very, very early predilection for Butterflies - I may say even from my nurses arms - and this taste having continued to old age, and having been indulged whenever opportunity offered, I have seen more of the little world of English Butterflies than most of my compatriots.
