It is the world’s smallest penguin species, found all around the coasts of New Zealand and the southern half of Australia, often in the vicinity of major towns and cities.
This beautifully illustrated book explores every aspect of the lives of these remarkable seabirds, from feeding and breeding to migrations and threats. The entertaining and informative text is accompanied by many beautiful photographs which illustrate the lives of these much-loved birds.
Ken Stepnell grew up on a farm at Buninyong near Ballarat. His love of photography started when his parents gave him a box camera for his ninth birthday. Since then, Ken has become a renowned photographer, particularly in Australian landscapes and natural history. He is a multiple winner of the coveted Hasselblad Masters Award for Nature photography, and his images have been published in various books for more than 40 years. Always on the lookout for a new challenge, Ken turned his attention to more man-made subjects, and decided to create the first photographic collection of Australia collector cars. He set about capturing the great diversity of car designs from the car industry first days until the late 1960. Although he and his wife Pam often join friends on collector car rallies, Ken has never restored or owned one of the ld girlshimself. He hopes to change that very soon.
