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.

You probably know the cicadas' shrill summer chorus. You've probably found the empty shells they leave behind. But can you tell a cherry nose from a double drummer, a floury miller from a green Monday? Do you know what beautiful colors they wear? Or what strange secret lives they live, deep underground, before they emerge for a few days in the sunlight?
