NATURE SUPPLIES US WITH A SEEMINGLY INEXHAUSTIBLE SUPPLY OF WONDER AND DIVERSITY, WITH MORE NEW SPECIES BEING DISCOVERED EVERY DAY!
For many of us, this incredible diversity is hidden from view due to where we live. Thankfully though, there are people who, through their professions, show us this hidden diversity. Not just the animals themselves, but also the ecosystems in which they live.
Tim Flach just happens to be one of those people. A photographer from England, Tim has devoted his entire life to recording these stunning representatives of the animal kingdom, immortalizing them for generations to come in the process. Among his portraits are endangered birds, which Tim manages to catch in all their extraordinary beauty with great understanding. Below please find some of his photos of these colorful and sometimes rare birds.
