Book Review: Butterfly Photographer’s Handbook: A Comprehensive Reference for Nature Photographers by William B. Folsom

As I said in an earlier post, I’ve read a few really good books on butterfly and macro photography lately.  Butterfly Photographer’s Handbook: A Comprehensive Reference for Nature Photographers by William B. Folsom is one of those. The book is essentially broken into two parts; a field guide and photography handbook.  Folsom provides an in-depth overview of the lives and habitat of butterflies in the first section.  The second section is all about the photography and specifically how it applies to imaging butterflies. While the book is probably ready for an update now that we all shoot digital, it is truly a great resource for the butterfly photographer.  I rate it 5 stars. GW
