Description

Pollination Power is a visually spectacular insight into the hidden secrets of plant pollination, unravelling the deceit, tricks and rewards that plants bestow upon their pollinators. Throughout the book, full page colour photographs are accompanied with extended captions, telling the stories of the different pollination methods used by plants.


Heather’s stunning photography illustrates how different plants employ a variety of techniques to ensure they are pollinated, be it by hummingbirds, lizards, birds, beetles or butterflies. Guidelines on petals often invisible to the human eye lead insects into the nectar source, whilst fragrances are emitted from flowers to control when pollinators enter and leave. And with the use of UV flash photography, Heather reveals how insects might see colour in flowers, often with drastic differences to our perception as humans.


This is Heather’s 60th book, adding to her impressive back catalogue of natural history photography books, and was a finalist in the Book Photographer of the Year award at the Garden Media Guild Awards, 2015.
