About this book

Language: French

An ode to Mother Nature and her insatiable desire for perpetual life.

Threesomes, swingers, polygamy... and you thought we're the only ones to be promiscuous in the field of love? Not only are these behaviours customary in insects, but in addition, they won't hesitate a moment to indulge in these libertine practices in front of everyone without fear of being photographed in action! Insects and other small animals have nothing to envy us for.

Did you know that beetles remain in their mating position for sometimes more than 12 hours straight? Or that some males give small gifts to their partner while others take them straight to the Middle Ages by leaving behind a chastity belt? Do you any idea of ​​the length of the sexual organs of an eight-millimetre long fly? Have you ever seen bedbugs run the hundred meters while copulating? All the answers and more await you in these pages.

We all have an amusing friend who celebrates his birthday, a great girlfriend who will love the concept, a son of 30 years or older to who you wish to say ... "When will I be grandmother?" or a wedding or housewarming to celebrate! It is tough to find a small original gift that not only make the recipient laugh, but also the rest of the gathering. Look no further, Lorraine Bennery, nature photographer, offers here a book about love that you can gift without hesitation! An enduring theme; short, relevant texts; high quality photographs; drawings – and the author hopes the magic will come by itself!

Summary in French:
Une ode à « Dame Nature » et à son insatiable et perpétuel désir de vie.

Ménage à trois, échangisme, polygamie... Et vous pensez que nous sommes les seuls à nous «lâcher» dans le domaine de l’amour ? Non seulement les insectes sont coutumiers du fait, mais en plus, ils n'hésitent pas un instant à s’adonner à ces pratiques libertines aux yeux de tous sans craintes de se faire photographier en pleine action ! Non vraiment, les insectes et autres petites bêtes n’ont rien à nous envier.

Savez-vous que les cantharides restent en position d’accouplement parfois plus de 12 heures d’affilée ? Que certains mâles font des petits cadeaux à leurs belles quand d’autres les transportent au Moyen-Âge en leurs posant une ceinture de chasteté ? Avez vous une petite idée de la longueur que peut avoir le sexe d’une mouche de huit millimètres de long ? Avez-vous déjà observé des punaises courir le cent mètres tout en copulant ? Toutes les réponses et même plus vous attendent entre ces pages.

Nous avons tous un ami rigolo qui fête son anniversaire, une super copine un peu coincée qui adorera le concept, un fils de 30 ans ou plus à qui dire... «Quand est-ce-que je serai grand-mère ?», un mariage ou une pendaison de crémaillère à fêter ! Dur dur de trouver un petit cadeau original qui fera rire non seulement son destinataire mais aussi le reste de l’assemblée. Ne cherchez plus, Lorraine Bennery, photographe naturaliste, vous propose ici un condensé d’amour à offrir sans modération ! Une thématique ancestrale, des petits textes pertinents, des photographies de grande qualité, des petits dessins et la magie opère ! Du moins nous l’espérons !
