Overview

A "Nature Photographer of the Year" winner shows why birds can lure an ordinary shutterbug into a mania for migratory paths. Stunning, inspirational exhibits of 170 original photos offer proof that the sparrows at your doorstep, unusual species visiting a nearby stream, and rare species in remote reaches, are all worthy subjects for your most imaginative shoots. Practical tips on choosing and using the best equipment (including the pros and cons of going digital) are accompanied by proven techniques for stopping birds in flight, shooting from a low angle, making use of motion blur, stalking, baiting, coping with weather extremes, and even what to do when you're driving along a busy road and a magnificent winged thing soars into view.
