Description
 
Barbara Norfleet (photo.); Edward O. Wilson (foreword). This unusual book has strikingly creative entomological compositions. While the great majority of Norfleet’s subjects are dead -- dried specimens ready for museum cabinets that she has posed -- they were once organic machines exquisitely designed for the environments in which they lived. Most are beetles (the most diverse of all living creatures) & most are also collector’s items, belonging to species prized variously for large size, bright colors, & bizarre spines, horns, & other armaments. She uses the device of the animal fable, but by using true aliens, bizarre tropical insects. Each full-page color photo has its meaning suggested in an accompanying caption.
