ONE HUNDRED BUTTERFLIES
by Harold Feinstein
2009, 128 pages, color photos throughout. Photographer Harold Feinstein showcases a wide range of butterfly species from around the world, turning exquisite details into mesmerizing works of art.

One hundred impeccably reproduced, oversized photographs allow viewers to appreciate the Blue Morpho of Central America, the African Birdwing, and the Asian Swallowtail at a scale and depth impossible to experience in nature.
