Overview


Butterflies

The Great Egg-fly, which flies over 1,400 miles over water from Australia to New Zealand. The prism-winged Blue Morphos, believed by some Amazon tribes to be bits of fallen sky.

Bringing the fascinating world of butterflies to your fingertips, FANDEX presents a field guide to 50 of these vibrant and graceful creatures.
