Beetles and Bugs by Jen Green


Beetles and Bugs by Jen Green

Close-up photography reveals the secrets of the mini-beast world - all-seeing compound eyes, super-sensitive antennae, minute clusters of eggs, deadly jaws, and an insect emerging from its pupal case. Stunning picture sequences zoom in closer still to follow a stag beetle battle, or insect flight. This fascinating book makes learning about natural history exciting and easy to absorb.
