bird's nests and eggs
My homage to the amazing avian builders. Photographed for my book, Nests: Fifty Nests and the Birds that Built Them. Chronicle Books, April 2011

The nests were photographed in four science collections: The California Academy of Sciences, The Western Foundation of Vertebrate Zoology, The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, the Cornell Museum of Vertebrates, and the American Museum of Natural History.

Most of the photographs were made with 39 mega pixel cameras, either with the Leaf Aptus back or Hasselblad.
