We live on a bug planet. Not only are insects the most numerous species on Earth, they've survived for 400 million years and show no signs of slowing down. Take a look outside: little creatures are creeping, jumping and flying everywhere.



Did someone say little?



Not in this book. In these eye-popping, oversized pages, bugs say cheese big time! Through Paul Davidson's powerful camera lens, see a fly the size of a man's shoe, the 30,000-odd lenses in a dragonfly's eyes, the hair on a bee's legs and much more. Bug-loving science writer Diane Swanson delivers fascinating info about buggy lives, buggy eating and lots of buggy bits, such as antennae, wings and weapons, that help make insects the most widespread animals on Earth.
