Description

Christopher Marley spent many years in tropical regions where insect populations are flamboyant and profuse. His growing fascination with insectstheir riotously colorful beauty, their vast diversity, and their endlessly fascinating waysled to lengthy study of entomology and arduous excursions in search of rare and exquisite specimens. (Marley asserts that increased appreciation of insects can help slow humanity's destruction of their habitat, which, unlike individual collection, is the foremost threat to their survival.) Each of these 48 cards shows a gorgeous insect on the front; an informative description is on the back. From the comical goliath beetle, a lumbering beast so huge that it sounds like a tiny aircraft when in flight, to the scintillatingly iridescent Morpho rhetenor butterfly, the pictures and profiles here offer an absorbing, entertaining glimpse into the amazing world of insects.show more
