Few infographs capture the liveliness of their subjects, but Eleanor Lutz's lovely chart of 42 North American butterflies reminds us that these are living beings as each butterfly flaps its wings.

Lutz, who blogs at Tabletop Whale, is a designer with a degree in molecular biology, and her infographs combine her interests in art and science. She has also illustrated a visual compendium of glowing creatures and an animated guide to the workings of human muscles—with more charts to come. You can also buy posters and other products featuring her images from her shop.
