  • Interest Level: Grade 3 - Grade 6
  • Reading Level: Grade 4

Flying insects hold one of the great keys to survival: wings. And there are winged insects buzzing, flitting, and soaring all around us. Take a close-up look to see how the hummingbird hawk moth dodges predators as it feeds, how honeybees dance to show where food-rich flowers are, and how an emperor dragonfly can see—and fly—in all directions. You’ll meet all kinds of incredible creepy crawlers with impressive flying techniques, from master-builder wasps to the always pesky mosquito. It’s enough to make you wish you had wings too!
