Andrew Fusek Peters has spent five years travelling round the UK to document and celebrate British butterflies. In Butterfly Safari, he shows butterflies in a new light, capturing close-ups of wing scales and the delicate structure of eggs, eyes and antennae. He has also pioneered never before-seen flight shots and astonishing aerial sequences. Many of these photos have already appeared in the national papers and magazines.
Andrew Fusek Peters is a wildlife and landscape photographer based in Shropshire. He has been on commission for the National Trust for the last eight years on the Long Mynd and Stiperstones nature reserves. His photos are regularly published in magazines and the national papers.
