Synopsis

Illustrated with the author's own photographs taken in jungles around the world, this book examines the crucial role of camouflage and mimicry in insect survival. During the course of roughly 400 million years on this planet, insects have developed over one million species with a great diversity of shape and colour to protect them from predators. Stunning colour photographs reveal insect secrets that we would never get a chance to observe ourselves as they attempt to blend into tree trunks or to imitate sticks, leaves, other insects or even bird dropping.

Bruce Purser spent the first ten years of his life on a sheep farm in New Zealand where he developed his lifelong fascination with insects. He trained as a geologist, which led him to the jungles of Borneo and Sumatra. He visited many tropical forests, notably those of South America. In the 1970s he moved from collecting insects to photographing them.
