FLIGHT INTO SUNSHINE by Helen Cruickshank


Email this review


The wife of America's outstanding photographer of birds, who shares her husband's professional interest and patience, records here a trip to Florida, mecca for naturalists with its endless variety of wild life. Of the trip there, and the photo equipment required-finally to specific sites, where they observed specific species; brown pelicans, Louisiana herons, Florida cranes, vultures, ibises, egrets, anhingas (snake-birds), and the elusive white heron-noted their habits and habitat, the variations in colony life- feeding, nesting, etc... and where her husband succeeded, not without strategy and endurance, in photographing these birds. The simplicity, authenticity of this narrative, together with the illustrations, her husband's, will combine to make this a natural in the natural history field.
