Great bird photos. All closeups and clear.55
I liked the pictures in this book a lot and there is a lot of colors. The author did a good job with the pictures. -an iPad fan55
Beautiful pictures! HOWEVER, would have liked more than profile views. Looked for front/ top view of heads for identifying marks. Top, wings open, bottom, wings open. Again to correctly identify some birds, who were in general close to monochromatic in color.15
Pictures are fantastic! Great way to identify birds when bird watching. However, the only minor thing it lacks is how the regions should be added to where these birds can be seen. Love it, though! Great job! I highly recommend it!55
I've always loved wildlife (specifically birds), but was inspired to buy this book after reading Tony Northrup's photography book (Stunning Digital Photography). They are both excellent! This book is filled with gorgeous pictures of birds and is perfect for any bird lover. Hopefully, with the help of the author's how-to book, I'll be taking beautiful bird pics of my own someday55
