More about this book - Owls
Owls command attention, the quintessential emblem of darkness, they evoke strong cultural responses, making their mysterious lives fascinating to us.
Northern Europe’s 12 species range from the huge Great Grey, with a round head as big as a small childʼs to the tiny Pygmy Owl that possesses a strength and ferocity out of all proportion to its size. For two of the worlds finest bird photographers, Jari PeltomÄki and David Tipling photographing and learning about owl behaviour has become a passion.
This book explores the fascinating lives of our owls, accompanied by riveting diary accounts from the authors adventures photographing in Europeʼs wildest places.
Encounters with owls are often fleeting, the hoot of a Tawny Owl emanating from a churchyard or the white ghost-like flash of a Barn Owl momentarily caught the headlights. This book reveals these secret lives in spectacular pictures, many published here for the first time.
