CAMERA TRAILS Along NATURE TRAILS
A natural color series of motion pictures
DICK BIRD, A.R.P.S., F.Z.S.
Canadian Naturalist — Photographer
A colorful and spectacular panorama of nature, an avian pageant in review. Different, dramatic and colourful.
From poker faced owls to tiny, energetic chickadees, from the strange and unconscious comedy of white pelicans to the astonishing nuptial antics of the western grebe. Rare intimacy in the family lives of bluebirds, warblers, wrens, grebes, avocets, ducks and shore birds.
Enchanting nature patterns of dew drenched spider webs. Colourful insects. Large and small animals in their natural environment seemingly unaware of the fact that their life routines were being recorded through the camera eye by this keen and understanding student of nature with the skill and devotion of an artist.
