An illustrated presentation by Oliver Smart, who is a wildlife photographer and ornithologist. His photographs have been published in the national press, nature magazines, books and wildlife guides. Have you ever wondered why a raptor has an orbital ridge or what the purpose is of a tubenose on a petrel? Well, in this talk Oliver guides you through some fascinating insights to the science of birds, their adaptations, evolution and physiology. The talk is split into four sections covering the science of birds, the photography, the aesthetics of bird photography and the rewards.
