Description


Wildlife photographer Marie Read and ornithologist/poet Pepper Trail combine their talents in a unique fusion of photography and verse that will surprise and delight readers, adding a new dimension to their understanding and appreciation of birds. The stunning photographs transcend mere portraits, providing windows into the fascinating lives of a diverse variety of bird species. The accompanying haiku are rich in word-magic and wit, complementing the images with deceptively simple elegance, giving readers intriguing insights while suggesting subtle truths about our own lives. Concluding sections enrich the readers' experience by placing the birds in ecological and behavioral context, describing the photographic process, and introducing the art of haiku.   Visually lovely and spiritually serene, For the Love of Birds: Visions and Meditations offers a profound new perspective on these marvelous beings, the birds who share our fragile earth.
