From the Introduction by Kathe Koja:

"It's not hard to notice birds; we see them every day, no matter where we live, rural space or urban, or any place in between: the pigeon on the stroll, the inquisitive beak at the feeder, the rush and startle of a flock of sparrows, the soaring shadow of -- is it? -- a hawk far up above. The real challenge is to see them as they are, to truly see them, as Rick Lieder has done in Aerial Acrobats."

"Fantastic backyard bird photos - Rick Lieder, the talented sf/f artist whose backyard nature photographs have stunned me for years, has released a new book of photos of small birds on the wing, shot in his own backyard in south Michigan.

Rick doesn't use fancy fast film or other high-tech treats -- instead, he just uses patience and care to capture these remarkable images. I just got a copy from Rick and discovered a lovely bonus: a short introduction by Kathe Koja, the fantastic writer."
