Detlef Knapp Snaps Portraits of Reptiles and Amphibians

From apes to their closest cousins, us, and from the might of big cats to the delicateness of insects, Detlef Knapp has a knack for capturing nature’s very essence. This fascinating collection of reptile and amphibian portraits has been done in his usual close-up, macros style. Intimate and personal, he offers a view of his subject’s character, imploring us to thrust our own emotions onto what are cold-blooded, though perhaps not cold-hearted, creatures.
