The photographs in this book will surprise and delight even the most reluctant of amateur entomologists.
Many of the insects' colors are brilliant and jewellike, and they are displayed beautifully here.
This book and accompanying CD provide a unique doorway to enjoyment of the insect concerts and solos that dominate our natural soundscape during the summer and autumn.
The text includes basic natural history information as well as identification tips and discussions of conservation issues -- such as insects as indicators of habitat health -- insects as pets, and appreciation of insect song.
The sonagrams included in the book help toward that end, as does the seventy-minute audio CD, which features high-quality recordings of the songs of all species, track-keyed to the information presented in the text..
