80 pages chocked full of magnificent photos taken with a Nikon D3 in perfect lighting conditions in three locations in Botswana, predator capital of the world. Many of the photos are simply astounding. The fast DSLR captured inquiring faces of animals in the first moments as the photographer came upon them, before they dispersed. Written as a story book with some explanatory material and much rhyme to make the book a good read for children to 8 or 10 years of age. A few pages are customized for the adult children of the mother to whom the book is dedicated. The photos are available separately on www.AsISeeThings.com, a smugmug-based e-commerce website at extraordinarily reasonable prices.
