Showcasing 150 of the best entries in the 2017 Wildlife Awards, this beautiful book starts with the overall winner Daniel Trim, whose striking study of a pied wagtail silhouetted against the runway lights at Heathrow illustrates the effect of the extra degrees of warmth given off by the buildings and lights. Each featured photographer briefly explains the attraction and challenge of the subject, for example in Alex Hyde's photo of a mussel colony in Cornwall showing the beautiful strata of rock below, or Peter Cairns' wide-angled study of an Osprey on a platform at his home in the Cairngorms. The photographs are divided into 15 categories, among them Animal Behaviour, Urban Wildlife, Botanical Britain and Wild Woods. Animal Behaviour includes Josh Jaggard's study of a puffin struggling to cope with a mouthful of sand eels, Sarah Darnall's brown hare camouflaged by asparagus stalks, and Robert Snell's study of a Hen Harrier on the Inner Hebrides titled "Intense Stare". Kutub Uddin captures a jumping spider eating a hoverfly in an extraordinary close-up, while Lawrie Brailey's "Mothering" shows a fox protecting a younger cub. Highlights from Urban Wildlife are Norman Watson's study of a grass snake in a gutter, Wendy Ball's split-second capture of a sparrowhawk killing a dove, Toby Pichard's pigeon against a backdrop of street art, and Richard Jacobs' Peregrine Falcon on the towers of York Minster. There are some incredibly lovely landscape pictures, including Francis Taylor's study of trees in the mist at Bolehill Quarry in the Peak District and Chaitanya Deshpande's silhouette of a red deer in the woods of Richmond upon Thames. The book concludes with an impressive section by young photographers. 208pp, over 150 photos, most in colour.
