For many of those who come to New Zealand to enjoy a taste of unrivalled natural beauty, the highlight of their visit may be a glimpse of the country's birds, mammals and reptiles, a day spent among the tranquil serenity of the bush, or a confrontation with the wild ocean shoreline. In New Zealand Nature: A Photographic Souvenir photographer Rod Morris has captured a gallery of gorgeous close-ups of spectacular animals along with their natural habitats, creating the perfect memento for nature lovers everywhere.
Rod Morris has been a wildlife film-maker for 25 years, but still photography remains his favourite medium. While his work takes him to many of the world's exotic places, including the subantarctic islands, he has a great affection for the wildlife still to be found in the remote corners of New Zealand. His most recent publication is Island Magic: Wildlife of the South Seas.
