Description:

Insects represent the most successful, the most abundant and some of the most remarkable life forms on earth. Except for the well-known pests they often go unnoticed as they share our gardens, our homes and frequently even our food. They pollinate the plants, break down decaying vegetation, aerate the soil, remove animal waste and remains, and form an important source of nourishment for birds, frogs and several mammals. South Africa has a great diversity of insect life which can be found everywhere, on the ground, in water and in the air. This book seeks to introduce the reader to many of the more common and interesting species. Remarkable Insects of South Africa features many unique never before published photographs which serve to open a window into the amazing, sometimes bizarre and often beautiful but invariably intriguing miniature world of the insects. Through high-quality digital macro-photography accompanied by informative text and captions the reader is guided on a fascinating safari of images as insects feed, breed and hunt in their natural surroundings.
