Curious Encounters With the Natural World by Michael Jeffords. Published by the University of Illinois

When I opened this book to a gorgeous photo of a luna moth on a green fern, I felt my blood pressure go down and my breathing slow. I felt relaxed for the first time all day. The authors understand the tremendous power that nature has on us, and we on it. From insects (both authors are entomologists) to large mammals and everything in between, readers are treated to an unusual look into the private lives of the beings we share our planet with. Sometimes creepy – mites and Japanese beetles, sometime beautiful, birds and butterflies we gain a new appreciation for the balance of our natural world. Highly recommended
