Nocturne

Creatures of the Night


Whether fierce, cuddly, startling, mysterious, or some indefinable combination of all of the above, nocturnal animals never fail to fascinate. Bats, big cats, flying squirrels, tarantula, owls, kangaroo mice, giant moths, sloth, several species of snakes and a Madagascar hissing cockroach are only a few of the animals illuminated in these lushly detailed portraits.

Seventy-five full-colour photographs of forty different species are accompanied by informed but accessible descriptions of each animal's habits and habitats and an introduction provides personal insight into how Scott captures her astonishing images. Nocturne is a compelling view of the rarely seen darkness dwellers who populate the night.
