An intimate and revealing study of these charismatic birds
a set of truly outstanding pictures...this book is ample confirmation of the true wonders still to be found on our fast-shrinking planet.
this book is an excellent addition to the coffee table of biologists and non-biologists alike. ...almost every image will bring a smile to your face.
it's hard to imagine anyone better to capture [Penguins] on camera than David Tipling...stunning images
This charming book is a visual celebration of all 17 species of penguin. David Tipling's affection and knowledge for these characterful birds is evident throughout.
