CFFC: Books and Paper

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Books and Paper.

I had no idea what I was going to do for this challenge. Then I used one of the bird identification apps on my tablet to check a range map for a species.

That made me think of the shelf full of field guides and bird family reference books that are currently stored on a shelf in a closet since our move.

I picked the Dark-eyed Junco because of my Throwback Thursday post this week.

Thanks Stuart. Despite being a photographer I much prefer illustrations rather than photos for field guides and reference books. The apps are useful but I wouldn’t rely on them for identification purposes.

Having supplied photos for field guides in the past I understand that photo based field guides have their place as long as I don’t have to use them.

Just a bit. One of my photos of a Red Fox in a hay meadow was used in a field guide to garden wildlife despite clearly not being in a garden.

Actually I put a wildflower meadow in a corner of my garden around that time but it would have to have been twenty times larger for the Fox photo.
