Annotation:Stunning, majestic, and ominous portraits of endangered African animals.

Archipelago Portraits of Life in the World's Most Remote Island Sanctuary By Liittschwager, David Book - 2005 508.969 L727a 2005 Available in some locations

Annotation:A National Geographic title about a part of the Hawaiian islands that is a nature preserve. Only researchers are allowed to visit, so this book is likely as close as you’ll ever get to this amazing place.

Creatures By Horenstein, Henry Book - 1999 779.32 H811c 1999 Available in some locations

Annotation:Instead of high definition shots in which you can see every hair and wrinkle, Horenstein focuses on flickers, snippets, and blurred outlines of animals. Much more intimate than your typical wildlife photography.
