Summary
  • "Unobtrusive as they go about their business, catepillars are rarely seen by humans - and are virtually never seen from the perspective presented in this volume: photographed in extreme close-ups at a resolution that captures in sharp detail the colors and features eluding the casual observer."
  • "Gathered by biologists Daniel Janzen, Winifred Hallwachs, and Jeffrey Miller in the tropical dry forests, cloud forests, and rain forests of northwestern Costa Rica, over 100 large-format photographs of caterpillars document the variety of shapes, vivid colors, and cryptic markings among these species. The pictures are accompanied by capsule species accounts - revealing life histories as diverse as their forms - and images of the adult butterfly or moth. Throughout, the authors convey an intimate sense of these creatures - studied over twenty-five years - by focusing on how their features figure in their behavior and ecology, and on the beauty of nature in this life stage, as well as the nature of that beauty."--Jacket
