About the book

A spectacular collection of the weird and wonderful  world of creepy crawlies.
There are all kinds of bugs lurking in your backyard.  Take a close-up peek at the alien-like beasties that are living  right under your nose!
Stunning images from scanning electron microscopes give a close-up  view of incredible minibeasts, revealing every hair on the back of a flea,  the beautiful scales on a moth's wing, and the amazing compound eye of a fly.
Discover what a fly likes to eat and how it digests its food or  how a pond skater can skim across the surface of water. Learn how a  colony of ants communicates, and find out if your garden might be  home to the fastest beetle in the world.
