Once again, John Banks’ pictures delight by their sheer beauty while his words describe the extraordinary and profound implications that butterflies can have for the expert - Sir David Attenborough

Scientific Award-winner at IWFF, Montana, 2005

Because of its terrain and climate, Kenya can be seen as a butterfly microcosm of the African Region, having 1000 of the Region’s 4000 butterfly species. The film shows about 100 of them.

It also provides a interesting analysis of their varied historical origins and their association with the main landscapes of Africa - forest, coastal forest, and savannah - as well as touching on the question ‘What butterflies might earliest man have seen, 4 million years ago?’
