A birdwatcher's treasure, Deborah Samuel's photographs 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 examples of incredible artistry and simple, natural perfection. Accompanying these images are detailed scientific descriptions and an index detailing the species' common and scientific names, size, habitats, and breeding practices.
