Taking a Photograph of a Bird's Nest, ca. 1900

A photograph showing Cherry Kearton standing on his brother Richard’s shoulders to take a picture of a bird’s nest, 1900.


The brothers were pioneers of wildlife photography and in 1892 took the first ever photograph of a bird’s nest with eggs. In 1899 they published With Nature and a Camera illustrated with 160 photographs. Richard went on to develop the photographic hide, after a series of experiments one of which involved hiding in a stuffed ox in order to obtain better pictures.
