"[A]bsolutely breathtaking....[W]ill have readers wishing for more photos. Unlike the 3-D books with the blue-and-red glasses, these images truly jump off the page. The depth of field achieved is remarkable. The book is a wonderful introduction not only to the field of entomology, but also to photography." School Library Journal
