Why no pictures?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Sting in the Tale (Hardcover)
I've loved bumble-bees since childhood and bought this book after hearing its abridgement on Radio 4. It is entertaining, amusing and an excellent introduction to these beautiful creatures. But why are there no pictures of such photogenic subjects? Author Dave Goulson writes passionately about the various species but fails to illustrate them. The book contains no pictures at all, and while there are excellent pictures of several species on the dust cover, it's a pity that someone did not take 10 minutes on the keyboard to name them.

Thank you for your review. I would have bought it immediately if it had pictures, but now I know there aren't, I'll wait until the price drops.

There may be no pictures but he does recommend Edwards & Jenner's 'Field Guide to Bumblebees' which complements A Sting in the Tale perfectly.
