Description

My Encounters with Minibeasts: From Purple Moonbeams to Itchy Cows by Densey Clyne Paperback 2018

My Encounters with Minibeasts is a collection of stories by naturalist Densey Clyne, covering adventures in the world of invertebrates and recounting tales of spider tricks and traps, magical moths, ridiculously hairy caterpillars and much more. It encompasses a wide range of intriguing behaviour and unlocks a whole host of minibeast secrets. Self-styled ‘Champion of the Underbug’ Densey presents her subjects not in the way that they are generally seen – as ugly and dangerous – but as intriguing, often beautiful, sometimes bizarre and infinitely diverse. The text is accompanied by amazing close-up images of bugs including grasshoppers, ants, wasps, butterfies, moths, mantises and spiders.
