The ancient Greeks considered the butterfly a symbol of immortality because of its astonishing beauty and grace. In this stunning book, butterflies are displayed as never before through exceptional photographs that capture the striking detail of their wings as well as the surprising beauty of every moment of life—from eggs and caterpillars to chrysalis and final birth. The photographer's special techniques and hours of patience—all of the butterflies at their various stages were photographed alive—allow the reader to perceive the voluptuousness of a wing surface or the step-by-step opening of a chrysalis. From the common to the very rare, Butterfly is a unique homage that transforms these gorgeous insects into works of art.
