Birds | Author: Tim Flach

Birds are a revelation. Radiating grace, intelligence and humour, they tantalise the human imagination. Working for years in his studio and in the field, internationally acclaimed photographer Tim Flach has portrayed nature's most alluring creatures alertly at rest and dramatically in flight, capturing intricate feather patterns and subtle colouration invisible to the naked eye.

Compelling text by prominent ornithologist Richard O. Prum takes the reader into the deep history of birds, ancestors of the dinosaurs living among us, and sheds light on the distinct behaviours of each species. The result of much patience, precision and persistence, Birds features more than 130 extraordinary photographs. Flach evokes the magnificence of the animal kingdom - and the urgent need to protect and defend it.
