How the book was produced

To capture the images that illustrate the book, photographer João Marcos Rosa had to spend entire days camouflaged with his equipment on a platform built in a tree 35 meters up from the ground.
8 months

The publication reflects the work of a group of researchers who spent eight months monitoring two harpy eagle nests found in the Carajás National Forest. The nests were home to two eaglets, seven and nine months old.

João was assisted by a professional climber, who deployed ropes to enable him to get to the top of the tree and stay in place there.

The results of these efforts are 144 pages containing unprecedented images, such as of a female eagle taking food to her nest and eaglets learning to fly
