‘Denys Ovenden captures so much detail and beauty in his drawings of insects such as the caddisflies, mayflies and stoneflies. His treatment of the water fleas would justly grace the wall of an art gallery.’
‘Refreshing originality … the unusual format works exceptionally well and beautifully depicts aquatic life from the unicellular paramecium to small fish and frogs.’
Mark Cocker, The Guardian
