Botany and Butterflying

Jaret Daniels has several fine field guides on the market, and I used his wildflower guide during my recent trip to Florida.  I highly recommend it to the general naturalist who wants to get a "lay of the land." There are so many plant species in Florida that it boggles the mind of this Ohio girl, and I appreciated an idiot-proof guide to help me along.

Jaret also wrote an excellent  field guide to Ohio's butterflies.  He is not only very knowledgeable about the identification of all those hard-to-know skippers and such, he is a marvel in the field.  Jaret is a professional photographer and his artistic eye for detail is obvious.  Nothing gets past this guy.  He can be in a group of 40 and STILL be the one who finds the rarity!

We are so lucky he travels up from Florida each year, just to be a Flora-Quest guide.  It is an incredible opportunity to be in a small group of participants and really have the time and ability to access  Jaret's knowledge.
