Feinstein, a noted photographer whose works of roses and other flora and fauna are in collections in museums worldwide, turns his lens to the wonders of the creature about which he writes: "The earth laughs with flowers, but it dances with butterflies." With an introduction to butterflies' role in the ecosystem and the need for conservation by the curator of the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory and Gardens (South Deerfield, MA), the oversize volume features exquisite images of butterflies including the starry night, sunset moth, pearly malachite, and zebra longwing; and interspersed tributes to these creatures associated with the soul and rebirth.
