I have spent the last five years travelling round the UK to
photograph UK butterfly species, many captured in flight and astonishing
aerial sequences for the first time, as well as revealing beautiful macro
close-ups of scales, eggs and antennae. Butterfly Safari is a 208 page
full colour 250x250 hardback published by Graffeg Books. The Gaurdian has published a feature on the book in their Saturday Magazine and online here. BBC Wildlife magazine ran an 11 page photo-story and Country Life ran a cover feature.
