Using the simple observation that every picture is worth a thousand words, the 1,000+ photographs in this book are all presented with a caption that starts the process of discovery.

This wonderfully illustrated book is essentially a photographic guide to the fascinating diverse insect families of the world and is arranged accordingly. It encompasses all key families, including the likes of butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, ants, bees, and so on. There are usually two to four images per page, while some flagship species receive a full page. Each stunning photograph, taken of wild insects in their natural surroundings, is accompanied by useful text on identification, interesting features and geographical distribution.
