Description: Few things are more stirring than the metamorphosis of a flower, its perfect form developing and then coming apart within the course of a few days, sometimes a few hours. But even the most attentive human eye has rarely witnessed what The Metamorphosis of Flowers has succeeded in capturing: the lives of flowers up close, reproduced here in 108 luminous color photographs.

The development of nearly 20 species of wildflowers has been caught on film using macrophotography, which produces remarkably clear, larger-than-life stop-action images. From the bud brimming with nectar and the unfolding of petals to the beauty of full bloom and then, after fading and shrinking, the fall of the corolla, these photographs reveal flowers as they have never been seen before.

Following a poetic meditation on flowers, the text provides detailed information on every photographed flower, among them irises, daisies, buttercups, cornflowers, thistles, and dandelions. A special eight-page section printed on translucent paper allows readers to behold the evolution of a bright red poppy almost as it happens.
