Oh, yeah! ...forgot about my beach reading: we go most days to the 
coast (Southern Oregon) for a sunset/sand walk, during which I'll often 
bring a book to read while the wife wanders with the pooch; these days 
it's Exuberance by KRJamison. A few quotes/images:

' "Caterpillars, cockroaches, grasshoppers, lobsters or crabs or snails 
are not to be distinguished from their seniors by any excessive 
gaiety." '

' "Once I saw a rush of which the object was a butterfly. Eyes wide, a 
gang of young male elephants collectively weighing maybe 40 tons 
thundered to a stop as the small fairy, white and weightless, rose up 
out of their midst. Then each turned on his heels and fled." '
