About this book

If your child could be pint-sized like a pipistrelle bat, or see eye-to-eye with a housefly they'd encounter a miniature world of strange body shapes, weird and wonderful behaviour, and some jaw-dropping insights into life for the very small.

Thanks to nature photographer Igor Siwanowicz's incredible photographs, they can do just that. With these astonishing images, they'll see in eye-popping close up detail how tiny creatures hunt, feed, move, survive and thrive.

There are familiar creatures like flies and beetles to look at, along with exotic birds, reptiles, amphibians and rodents. Discover what makes them different and how they cope with living in highly varied habitats. With Igor's behind the scenes guide on how to photograph such tiny beasts, this is an awesome view of nature in miniature.

Suitable for 9 - 13 years

Biography

Igor Siwanowicz works at the Max Planck Institute in Munich, researching neurobiology. However, having been brought up by a pair of biologists in a house full of atlases and albums, it is inevitable that he has put his scientific career on hold for a while to follow his dream of becoming a nature photographer.
