Today we published two new reviews from the Wildguides series, these two are on sepcies from the Masai Mara (as opposed to the recent UK only guides). They are:
As a photographer I enjoy photographic ID guides for their aesthetic appeal. As a wildlife watcher I prefer my bird books to be drawings (I find where subtleties are involved a drawing can show them better), but other wildlife (mammals, butterflies, insects etc) I quite like photographic guides as they offer more realistic colours.
From a photographers point of view the images used in the book are stunning (also the case from a birders point of view) and for some may be reason enough to visit the book (if not purchase it).
Both are photographic field guides, and make for interesting viewing.
