What would you say if I told you it’s possible to take a trip through the rainforests of the world without a single can of bug spray? You can with Rainforestby Ben Morgan and photographer Thomas Marent.

Marent spent 16 years traveling the world, taking pictures in rainforests on 5 continents. This gorgeous coffee-table book puts you in the midst of plants, animals, insects, and of course orchids from rainforests all over the world. Marent’s photographs capture the beauty of typical rainforest animals, like monkeys, birds, and snakes, but also many small creatures that could be easily overlooked by an inexperienced eye. Surprisingly, the beauty and colors are just as stunning from a butterfly in Brazil, a crayfish in Australia, or some tiny fungi in Indonesia.

With incredible photos and clear text, this book provides a visual lesson of orchids’ natural habitats in these rich, tropical forests. So now is your opportunity to visit tropical rainforests all over the world, and skip the bug spray.

    Ive stood looking at that stunning book in bookstores a hundred times already, so maybe I should just buy it. And I agree that we tend to overlook the beauty of little things too much

    I linked to Amazon and checked out a few of the pages from that book. Even though they don’t preview the best pages it really looks like a superb book. Thanks for the recommendation.
