Best Field Guide

This is the best field guide to Indian butterflies yet as of writing this review. The book gives helpful identification keys along with photos for most of the Indian butterflies. But potential buyers might want to wait for the second edition which is expected to be released sometime in 2013 and pretty more comprehensive.
