People have long marvelled at the patterns on the wings of butterflies and moths without understanding them. This remarkable book shows how they have evolved to deter predators and how, seen from the perspective of a bird or lizard, they appear to be the eyes of a fox or owl, a snake’s head, or the tail of a scorpion. Illustrated with close-up photographs and works of art, the book also explores the way these symbols have influenced human culture.
