Each piece makes the reader feel as if you are actually there, witnessing the animals in their private lives. Detailed spreads offer a wealth of information on all the aspects of animal life that make nature so awe inspiring. Dramatic scenes full of detail with text that both explains scientific terms and describes what is happening. This book focuses on courtship by featuring differences between males and females (satyrus butterflies, goldfinch, nyala antelopes); how animals choose a partner (fiddler crabs, prairie dogs, baboons); display tactics (peacock, Blue-footed booby, gelada baboons); offering of gifts while courting (arctic tern, nursery spider); and much more.
