Metamorphosis coverOne only need look at the breath-taking close-up photo adorning the cover of Rupert Soskin‘s new Metamorphosis; Astonishing Insect Transformations from Bloomsbury to immediately assume that this is going to be quite a remarkable book.

But, as goes the old adage about judging a book by its cover, so the author has kindly provided a “taster” on his website to prove that the cover is only the beginning of this remarkable collection of photographs detailing one of the most awe-inspiring processes of the living world: the transformation in insects – either in part or in toto – from one physical form to another; metamorphosis.
