Through the use of novel photographic techniques the author gives us an 'insect-eye view' of the world of flying insects. By presenting them in the wider landscape they inhabit, rather than at the end of a close-up lens, the author reinforces the view that even relatively 'simple' animals like insects share the same world as human beings. This theme chimes with current thinking about conservation and the importance of diversity in the natural environment. Mastery of the air is the supreme achievement of the evolution of insects and the images bring the viewer closer than ever to an experience of the 'action'. The visual framework forms a convenient basis for discussing some of the ecological, behavioural, and physiological aspects of flight in accessible non-technical language.
