By Ba Rea, Karen Oberhauser, Michael Quinn

Spiffy little book illustrating insects (and a few other arthropods) that frequent milkweeds and other meadow flowers of North America. Excellent photographs, with detailed identifications using scientific names. Especially nice is the Gallery of Ladybug Beetles, illustrating some common members of that family. Detailed notes on ecology. This book is a gem, and a bargain at $9.00 list.
