Rick Mikula is the founder of the Hole-In-Hand Butterfly Farm where he's been breeding and selling butterflies in seven greenhouses since 1980. His work has been profiled in People magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and on the Discovery Channel. In addition, Mikula serves as the butterfly habitat consultant for many universities, zoos, museums, and aviaries.Review:
For most people, the mention of butterflies immediately evokes an image of delicate beauty, even if we know little about them. Fortunately, Rick Mikula takes our comprehension of the lovely lepidoptera a bit further in his book, Garden Butterflies of North America: A Gallery of Garden Butterflies & How to Attract Them. The various types of butterflies common to North America are explored, along with methods for inviting them into our own backyards. Mikula provides a brief history of the butterfly, explodes the myth of a "butterfly season" (some species hibernate) and discusses man's fascination with them through the ages. Various Northern species are examined, as are their eating habits and life cycles, the flowers that attract them, the climate they prefer and other intriguing patterns. A thorough profile is provided for each butterfly, with a list of suggested plants to grow for attracting them to the home garden. Garden Butterflies of North America is as absorbing in content as it is pleasing to the eye, and provides a better understanding and deeper appreciation for these winged creatures. -- From Independent Publisher
