Synopsis:

Backyard Bugs is crawling with gorgeous photographs - up close and in full color - of the amazing bugs we see around us every day. Resting on your windowsill, circling your porch light, crawling through the grass in your backyard, bugs are everywhere - and they are beautiful. Robin Kittrell Laughlin's vivid photographs capture the kaleidoscopic colors, fascinating details, and amazing facial expressions (yes, expressions) of these underappreciated creatures. From common pillbugs to exotic dragonflies, tiny orange mites to green-fanged spiders, these outrageously ordinary critters will surprise you with their glorious looks. Accompanied by a foreword by noted naturalist and bug-lover Sue Hubbell, the author's outrageous stories of how she photographed these forty bugs, amusing literary quotes, scientific information about the bugs and their habitats, and a glossary of bug terminology, Backyard Bugs will make you look again at our tiniest neighbors.
