Many of the images presented in this gallery were made for inclusion in Dr. Deb's encyclopedic work, "Poison Plants in the Pasture: A Horse Owner's Guide." Sometimes insects that eat or lay eggs upon different weeds and grasses contribute to their toxicity. Dead insects that become incorporated into hay can also be highly toxic. Bees and other insects that pollinate are crucial to the continuing survival of many plants (both beneficial and toxic) that can be found on any farm or ranch.

We present this gallery so that you may appreciate Dr. Deb's ability as a field photographer, but also for another reason: simply, that many insects are astonishingly complex and beautiful. Dr. Deb brings these images together from her travels in many countries around the world.
