Creatures of the Night by Joe McDonald( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The secret world of nocturnal wildlife is seldom observed, even by the keenest of nature enthusiasts. This unique book offers a window into the lives of little-known and little-studied creatures and their remarkable behaviour, and the adaptations which they have developed in order to optimise their ability to live their lives actively during the hours of darkness. Nocturnal creatures from around the world are covered by the series of stunning images, and these include flying squirrels, sugar gliders, skunks, foxes, cats (including Ocelot and Jaguar), raccoons, owls, bushbabies, genets, bats, frogs, toads, salamanders, snakes, geckos, spiders and a variety of insects. Extended captions explain interesting facts about the creatures and behaviours shown, and also give advice on nocturnal wildlife photography. The book concludes with a separate chapter of more detailed tips for successful night photography. Over many decades the photographers have specialised in dramatic action sequences, often involving high-speed flash, and their remarkable results are what makes this book truly special. Whether it is a bat on the wing taking a drink of water from a lake, a flying squirrel airborne between trees or a leopard on a nocturnal prowl in search of prey, every page of this title has something special to offer

Camouflaged wildlife : how creatures hide in order to survive by Joe McDonald( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This beautifully illustrated book on camouflaged animals includes some of nature's greatest designs and is one of the most remarkable compilations of pictures on the subject ever published. These images have to be seen to be believed in terms of the subjects' remarkable imitations of their natural backgrounds which often aid them in their roles as hunting predator or prey attempting to avoid capture. Types of animal covered include invertebrates, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and all kinds of marine wildlife. The text, written by the expert authors and photographers, explains what is shown in each picture, giving insight from the actual observations. Subjects include colour-changing chameleons and fish, birds which look like tree branches, eggs which blend with their sand or gravel background, butterflies which perfectly imitate leaves, crab spiders which mimic the bright petals of their chosen bloom and Snow Leopards which merge seamlessly with the slopes on which they stalk their prey. Decades of work by the award-winning photographers are distilled down into this remarkable and eye-caching book

"One of the most recognizable groups of birds in the world, Penguins offer a host of surprises. Normally associated with the frigid and inhospitable continent of Antarctica, just two species are found only here. Penguins are found throughout sub-Antarctic and even cool-temperate climates, spanning the southern hemisphere from southern South America, southwestern Africa, Australia, and New Zealand, and in multiple remote islands in the southern oceans. Joe and Mary Ann McDonald provide stunning images of these birds and introduces readers to most penguin species found worldwide―from the largest, the emperor penguin to the tiny fairy penguin found on the warm beaches of southern Australia, and Joe shows how these remarkable birds have conquered habitats few other species dare even visit and establish nesting colonies that may number in the hundreds of thousands. Readers will discover penguins’ life histories and their peculiarities and gain an appreciation and new understanding of these charming tuxedo-clad birds."--Provided by publisher
