Markus Varesvuo's first title Birds: Magic Moments published in 2011 took the world of bird books by storm selling tens of thousands of copies and coeditions in half a dozen countries all around Europe. The author's status as one of the world's best bird photographers was already established and the collection of images was breathtaking. Since then Markus's career has gone from strength to strength. Here, for Birds in Pictures he has gathered a new and even better collection of stunning bird images from around the world with highlights including Snowy Owls, Puffins, Dippers, and Capercaillies. The format of the book is slightly larger to show off the photography in all its glory. The text is brief with short descriptions of the subjects and photography tips. In short this will be Markus's biggest and best book to date and it will be another 'must-have' book for birdwatchers and wildlife photographers everywhere.
