Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0836820606, Library Binding)

The world of plants, insects, and other small creatures offers a wealth of fascinating facts and information to young naturalists who look closely. Nature Close-Ups combines crystal-clear photography of remarkable phenomena, otherwise hidden from view, with clear, descriptive, and interesting text. Cicada Sing-Song introduces the little insects with the big chorus of sound in the summer. Flutter by, Butterfly presents the exotic beauties of the insect world that go through a miraculous transformation before earning their wings. It's a Frog's Life! focuses on the little amphibians with the built-in goggles and the permanent, widemouthed smiles. Plants of Prey reveals the unbelievable world of the ingenious, carnivorous plants that prey on insects. Spotlight on Spiders takes a look at the clever way spiders find their food and defend themselves against ever-lurking dangers. Catch Me If You Can! highlights the most successful creatures on Earth -- insects -- that have developed some amazing tactics for survival.

Many insects eat plants, but did you know that some plants eat insects? Sundews, pitcher plants, bladderworts, and Venus flytraps are all carnivorous plants. Discover their weird and wonderful shapes and their ingenious ways of luring and trapping their prey.
