The vibrant and exciting world of penguins is shown in all its glory in this new book from renowned wildlife photographer David Tipling, who has trekked to remote and beautiful locations to capture birds in their natural habitat going about their daily lives. Moments rarely caught by humans have been preserved on film and reproduced in glorious full-colour images. Penguins: Close Encounters showcases 140 amazing photographs of birds in the wild, and a short description accompanies each image. The book has coverage of all of the world's 17 penguin species - including a comprehensive 'penguin fact file' section at the end - and chapters cover all aspects of their lives and behaviour. This book is a celebration of these birds and a photographic study that is sure to captivate any bird lover or wildlife photography enthusiast.
