Beautiful Butterflies

With a minimum of scientific terms, each title describes a few general characteristics of all insects and some distinctive characteristics of those that are featured here. On each chapter spread, several short sentences of text, set against a pastel background, are illustrated by a full-page (or a page and a quarter) color picture of one or more of the species. Most of the photos are sharply defined close-ups, so detailed that in shots of the insects’ eggs, each one is distinct. Antennae segments, hairs, and spines on the insects’ legs and bodies, etc., are clearly visible as well. Leaf-shaped sidebars offer miscellaneous facts; a one-page appendix describes general characteristics of invertebrates and includes photos of four related insects.
