This one is hard to describe, but it offers a beautifully designed collection of close-ups of insects and their environments. Surprisingly well-written descriptions accompany these images, and there's a "magnify" feature that lets users see even more of the details. Younger students will enjoy the images, and secondary students will appreciate the descriptions and explanations.
