Nature Photography


    ”NATURE” is a very wide term. It is not possible to state concisely the meaning that the author attaches to it. He does not refer to the larger animals, and though he gets down to beetles and butterflies, he does not include the smaller creatures that are generally called microscopic. He deals with fishes, birds, flowers, trees, reptiles and some of the larger insects, giving what is evidently his own experience in connection with the photography of such things. This personal character of the book gives it a value that a more inclusive compilation might not possess. He has very little to say about the actual photography, but treats rather of the selection and arrangement of the subjects, where and when to look for them, and so on, and in this connection gives advice that will be found of great value by those who do work of this kind.
