Bugs Up Close : A Magnified Look at the Incredible World of Insects
by Lars-Åke Janzon and John Hallmén




Overview -
Take a close-up look into a world you've never noticed.

Bugs are usually so small that we hardly notice them, let alone think of them as living beings. But call upon the magnifying glass, and a shapeless jumble of legs, wings, and antennae suddenly starts staring back at us.

About 80 percent of the Earth's animals are insects. While there are millions of different species, we rarely see many of them . . . until now. Thanks to the photography of John Hallm n, who took a camera and magnified these magnificent creatures one hundred times, we can see what we've never been able to see before.

Bugs Up Close takes readers on a journey into a world rarely seen, with incredible photographs of such insects as:

Crane flies
Yellow meadow ants
Black fungus beetles
Treehoppers
And many more

The diversity of this insect civilization is striking and unknown to most. An insect we may never have thought twice about now looks like a creature from outer space. Fascinating and somewhat monstrous details such as compound eyes, antennae, and sharp mouth parts are visible, and with text by Lars- ke Janzon, Bugs Up Close is an amazing close look into the strange and beautiful world of insects.
