This is a lovely book, vividly written, giving us a fascinating insight into the world of wild life photography. It is a must for all those who enjoy insights into the natural world. -- Alexander McCall Smith In a word, beautiful. John shares the experience of patiently waiting, then the euphoria of capturing the action; capturing the art in nature. -- Bill Oddie Here you'll find a version of the world which is more real, more intense and, sadly, more beautiful than the one most of us are forced to occupy. -- Adam Nicolson A kaleidoscope of brilliant wildlife experiences not to be missed -- Sir John Lister-Kaye OBE, Conservationist and nature writer. These evocative stories are from the heart of the keenest observer, a skilled cameraman and a superb naturalist * Chris Packham * Clear and poetic ... throughout, Aitchison notes that observing wildlife highlights the precariousness of the natural world. * Publishers Weekly *
