A pioneer of high-speed photography, Stephen Dalton is one of the world's greatest nature photographers. By freezing motion with his camera, he has unlocked the mysteries of movement and has had a stunning impact on the way we see nature. This book celebrates his work by presenting more than 140 full colour portraits of the birds, insects, mammals and English countryside that Dalton celebrates as an artist, as a scientist and as a lover of wildlife.

Stephen Dalton (born 1937) is an English wildlife photographer and author. He is known for his pioneering work, from the early 1970s onward, in high-speed nature photography. He was the first person ever to record pin sharp images of insects in flight. His work covers a wide variety of animals: from amphibians and birds to mammals and invertebrates. Dalton was born in Surrey in 1937 and from a young age was an enthusiast for nature and photography.

Stephen Dalton was a lover of the natural world from a very early age: When I was three I used to pick up wood lice, moths and the like – the only way my parents could get me to read was through nature books

Stephen Dalton was a lover of the natural world from a very early age: When I was three I used to pick up wood lice, moths and the like – the only way my parents could get me to read was through nature books. Having been denied the chance to study biology at either ‘O’ or ‘A’ level at his school, he freely admits that the photography diploma course he took. as the first time in my life that I was studying something I was interested in – I always got over 90% and took it very seriously.

The concentrated energy of the visual work is offset by the light touch Dalton brings to the accompanying text. Informative and engaging, he tells of the challenges of adjusting to his subject's schedule rather than following his own. But Dalton's greatest gift is revealing the adaptive genius of some of nature's most familiar creatures.

Nice pictures. Very many from his first book. In the first book he gave a lot of credit and appreciation to the man who helped him with the set up of the photographic apparatus and flashes which he said he couldn't have managed alone. When he talked of his earlier photos this man somehow disappeared. That is kind of sad. His style of writing is easy and his love of nature comes through.

If you like really great photography presented in interesting ways, you will love this book! It is a great conversation starter and an excellent coffee table book. All ages really like it - our family has from 4 to 75 and we all love reading and enjoying the pictures in this book.

The book was as interesting as the cover which is what caught my eye first. Once you opened the cover you could not put the book down and you could not help but want to share what you were reading.

This is absolutely a must-have coffee table book for any nature lover. It is filled with spectacular color photos on glossy paper so clear & vibrant they pop off the page. Dalton's high-speed photography is pure genius.
Bats, birds, ladybugs, butterflies, dragonflies, bees & a vast array of other animals are captured in mid flight. The several frames of a chameleon lashing out its tongue to capture its prey are captivating.
You also get to see numerous frogs & mice as they rest, swim, eat, climb plants, & leap through the air. A few plants such as moss, fungus, liverworts, sedge & an oak seeding are also shown up close.
Captions for each creature give fascinating information on their daily lives, eating habits, & special abilities. Get this book, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Dalton forces the viewer to stop in time with the subject photographed and see a moment as it can never be seen.
While there is joy and wonder is looking at Dalton's amazing photographs, there is also sadness in knowing that so many of these incredible creatures are going extinct.
