Description
New Look! Relaunched with new jackets and 8 pages of new text! Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the extraordinary world of insects. Superb color photographs of beetles, bugs, bees, butterflies, and more give the reader a unique "eyewitness" insight into the variety and complexity of insects, their structure, life cycles and behavior. See a queen wasp building her nest, a caterpillar devouring a leaf, a cockchafer beetle taking off, two stag beetles fighting over a mate, and a damselfly nymph emerging as an adult. Learn why bees make honey, how to identify insects, why leafcutter ants build underground nests, how diving beetles live and breathe in water, and how mosquitoes spread disease. Discover how a wasp's compound eyes work, which insects have ears on their knees, how wasp grubs feed on living caterpillars, how a butterfly can smell with its wings, and much, much more!
