A very concise yet informative reference for butterflies of Estero Bay and great starting point for coastal San Luis Obispo County as a whole. Great use of arrows to point out diagnostic ID characteristics. Wonderful accompaniment to other references, and very slim and light to easily fit into a bag or backpack without notice. I keep mine in a 3-hole punch planner that I modified into a field notebook. Great to have on hand for any Bio work along the coast and/or anyone interested in butterflies. I downloaded the free copy as well, but prefer to have the non-profit printed copy. It is cheap in price and of better quality than what I could print from home (and likely cheaper than Staples or some other company). The paper is thick and printed with indelible ink, a must for foggy, moist, or rainy days on the Central Coast. I highly recommend it!
"Michael Walgren and associates hit a home run 6-stars" Morro Bay, CA, and the larger Central California Estero Bay Area, which is covered in this book -- is a Mecca for Nature lovers and environmentalists. Such original field research (including written content and photos) focused on location-specific resources like the specific butterflies of Estero bay, is simply an essential resource for so many of us involved in our various "eco"-occupations. Buy this book. Pick the cheapest "media mail" shipping option, and the whole book arrives to your house for under $10. This is cheaper than you could do it on your home color printer. We know that our local Resource Ecologist Mike Walgren has several more such beauties in preparation. Enjoy, Mike Baird
