The midwestern state of Ohio has the unique distinction of being located in both the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence watershed and the Mississippi River watershed. Its rich deciduous forests and remnants of prairie support thousands of flowering plants and their attendant butterflies. Throughout the blooming season, even casual observers can regularly see such standouts as Red-spotted Purple, Hackberry Emperor, Zebra Swallowtail, and Monarch--and it's not just butterflies making regular visits to flowers. The Buckeye State is packed with great places for observing hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, moths, wasps, flies, and beetles. This diverse assortment of animals collectively plays essential ecological roles while supporting the production of staple food crops for humans. Learning about pollinators and the fascinating lives they lead is endlessly enriching. Given the remarkable diversity of species, it's handy to have quick access to a portable and reliable reference . This beautifully illustrated resource features over 100 common and familiar species as well as a back-panel map showing top pollinator-viewing hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and gardeners who wish to learn more about the pollinators they are most likely to encounter in Ohio. Made in the USA.
