My latest book out! (with pics from my K10D)

Hi All,

Just got my authors copies of my latest book, Southern African Mammals Made Simple!

Feeling very chuffed as this is the first book I've done that is also available in eBook format.

A lot of the images in the book were taken using my old K10D... I think it is almost time to retire the old girl and upgrade to a K-3!!

This is the third book I've done and it still feels just as exciting getting those authors copies as the first book I did!!!

Cheers,
Gordon

Hi manntax, please see my signature for links.

Note these are low resolution for the sake of keeping the download of images small...

Cheers,
Gordon

Congratulations, may it make you rich and famous, mind you "Southern African Mammals Made Simple" doesn't have that catchy a feel about it in the title.

Congratulations! I think my gf and I may have used your LBJ book while travelling in Zambia some years ago.

Thanks everyone!

Here are the images so you don't have to follow links (thanks mods for the reminder)!









KevinR, twitching is my first love but I absolutely love anything to do with nature!

jva59, hope you got some use out of using the book? (it would have helped for Zambia though strictly it does not go as far north as that)

Cheers,
Gordon

Lol, are you implying that it sounds like a cookbook?

Just kidding Gordon! Publishing a book is a lot of work. Congrats on getting it done - looks cleanly designed, written, and illustrated. The illustration + photo works well.

Best of luck!

That would be great as I have no recipes for Genets or Civets!
