Gathered by biologists in the tropical forests of Costa Rica, over 100 large-format photographs of caterpillars document the dizzying variety of shapes, vivid colors, and cryptic markings among these species. The pictures are accompanied by capsule species accounts and magnificent images of the adult butterfly or moth. Throughout, the authors convey an intimate sense of these creatures by focusing on how their features figure in their behavior and ecology, and on the beauty of nature in this life stage.
