    This visual feast reveals a multitude of butterfly and moth species from around the globe. Here are some of the most colorful, spectacular and sometimes weird examples of the world's butterflies and moths. Vibrant colour photographs and macro images complement the enlightening text written by zoologist Ronald Orenstein, who explains the scientific curiosities of these amazing insects. He makes clear how to differentiate between butterflies and moths; how caterpillars camouflage themselves; and how their feeding strategies and evolutionary adaptations help them prevail in the wild.
