As a sneak preview of our forthcoming new book Nature of the Rainforest, we are proud to unveil a selection of the book’s many stunningly beautiful photographs taken by the world-acclaimed nature photographers Michael Fogden and Patricia Fogden.

We hope you enjoy them.

The gliding leaf frog (Agalyschnis Spurrelli) can glide at angles of 45 degrees, enabling it to move easily from tree to tree in the forest canopy and to escape arboreal predators. / Nikon F4; Micro-Nikkor 105 mm; multiple electronic flashes at f/16; Fujichrome film.

The eggs of rain frogs (Eleutherodactylus spp.) are laid in damp leaf litter rather than water.  There the embryos undergo direct development, metamorphosing completely into froglets within the eggs. / Nikon F4; Micro-Nikkor 105 mm; multiple electronic; flashes at f/16; Fujichrome film.

The female brown-throated three-toed sloth carries her single offspring with her for several months until the young sloth can forage on its own.  The infant clings to its mother's fur and is taken everywhere with her, snuggled up in its own portable hammock from which it views the world with lively curiosity. / Nikon F3; Zoom-Nikkor 80-200 mm; Kodachrome film.
