A co-worker suggested I check out your book (barry b). Absolutely beautiful, fantastic shots. Honestly have no idea how you can get so close to the little creatures without them scrambling off. You have a true gift.

I would not have figured myself for someone who would be so taken with photographs of insects. Horses..dogs..cats..being more my style..Finding this book has opened my eyes to world which instantly changed the one I have been walking through..Not only has Ms Kono captured these precious beings with professional insight..she seems to open us to the possibility that these delightful creatures have a sense of humor..or whatever the equivalent may be in their language..thank you Ms. Kono..for persuing your passion with such flair..sharing your work can only bring more sensitivity to a world often ignored or taken for granted

The photos in this book are simply amazing! I have never seen the colorings or markings on such small insects come to life like in these photos. Who knew a grasshopper would smile for the camera! This book would be enriching in any classroom and fun on any coffee table. I can't wait to get mine.
Thank you for sharing Ms. Kono!

The photographs in this book are amazing ... who knew that this universe was walking around the backyard!!! Ms. Kono has a truly unique gift of capturing the miraculous mystery of these beings. I'll never look at a bug the same way again.
