Deborah Samuel's photographs are meant to inspire and teach. In this book she turns her lens toward the bird and her images are as surprising as they are exquisite. From nest to egg to feather, these images are an exercise in seeing and a showcase of what photography can reveal: the impossibly soft feathers of ospreys; the iridescence of a bird-of-paradise; the curved, needle-like beak of a common scimitarbill; and the psychedelic hues of the aptly named resplendent quetzal. Samuel also photographs the nests and eggs of birds, showing us examples of incredible artistry and simple, natural perfection. Accompanying these images are detailed scientific descriptions of Samuel's subjects, written by Mark Peck, an ornithological expert at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. An index detailing each species-its common and scientific names, size, habitats and breeding practices-makes this more than a photography book, while the extraordinary images transform it into a sourcebook of colours, shapes and designs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book is an optic tour de force that challenges the viewer to reevaluate beauty in nature and the aviary world." - New York Spaces"Canadian photographer Deborah Samuel took all 135 of the pictures in this beautiful and unusual book not out in the field, but inside the collection room of the Ornithology Department of the Royal Ontario Museum, in Toronto . . . Each invites a long look and rewards close study, allowing you to see details of feathers, nests, and eggs that you otherwise might only catch glimpses of." -BirdWatchingDaily.com "August Top 5 Summer Pick: Fine art photographer Deborah Samuels captures the psychedelic hues of our feathered friends." -PetSmart
