Unrivalled: the first illustrated book about flamingos on the book markets

Crowd pleasers flamingos - the pink animals are the new unicorns!

Insider's view: No other wildlife photographer has such a large body of images of these birds as Claudio Contreras Koob.

Graceful, elegant and draped in colourful plumage - hardly any bird enchants us as much as the flamingo. And hardly anyone can bring us closer to this animal as well as Claudio Contreras Koob: the studied biologist and photographer has had a special relationship with the flamingos of his native Mexico since childhood. In this book, he shows more than 120 brilliant photographs of life in a flamingo colony - from wonderful detail shots of the plumage to aerial photos that reveal the sheer size of the bird population. The fascinating colouration of the animals, from delicate shades of cream, pink and ochre to deep orange-red, and Claudio Contreras Koob's incorruptible image-making make this title an informative as well as aesthetic delight.
