Face to Face With PenguinsBook - 2009
You're on the South Georgia Islands, a remote, icy place, with nobody around for miles and miles-except several thousand penguin friends, that is. Stunning photographs by Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott lead you into a mass of birds as they waddle across rock and sand, so clumsy on land, so graceful in the sea. Learn of the nesting habits, diet, family and social lives of these birds that always look dressed to impress. This fun book will also inspire readers to care about penguins' threatened habitats. Yva Momatiuk & John Eastcott are award-winning photographers who have collaborated for many years. Their work has been featured frequently in National Geographic Magazine, and their articles and photographs have also appeared in Audubon and BBC Wildlife, as well as Smithsonian, National Wildlife, and Ranger Rick. Their exquisite photographs have been featured in numerous books, including Mustang, a tribute to wild horses.
