Having photographed birds for over 20 years, Markus Varesvuo presents the reader with his 100 favourite species and his beautiful photographs of them in the wild. Markus has selected the very best images from the thousands he has taken over the decades, and in the accompanying text he explains why each bird is special and to what lengths he had to go to obtain some photographs. Species covered range from the spectacular Golden Eagle that adorns the front cover through more familiar wildfowl and garden birds to eye-catching owls and exotic bee-eaters. The book is a celebration of birds that is sure to captivate any bird lover or wildlife photography enthusiast.
