Product Description

Why do fireflies glow? How do a cricket's chirps differ from a grasshopper's? At what time of day are dragonflies most active? This information-packed guide explains the behavior of the insects around us--and raises the curtain on an exciting drama taking place before our eyes. Illustrated throughout with pen-and-ink drawings, this book tells how, where, and when to observe the most intriguing activities for more than 60 common insects in the natural habitats. The species covered range from ants, bumlebees, and silk moths to June beetles, snow fleas, and monarch butterflies.
