Birds inhabit every continent and major island, and are among the most diverse group of vertebrates on the planet. For ornithologist and National Geographic photographer Tim Laman, documenting these magnificent creatures has been a lifelong passion that has taken him from the Antarctic Peninsula to the uninhabited Foja Mountains of New Guinea, and more than one hundred other locations around the world.

Here, Laman shares his favourite bird photographs from more than twenty-five years in the field, along with some of his memorable adventures in pursuit of them.
