Columbia is filled with amazing people and today I’d like to feature one who lives just across the street from me. My neighbor, Noppadol Paothong, is an award winning photographer who just recently published the most gorgeous book, “Save the Last Dance”. The pictures are stunning and the pages so lavish that you cannot help but start to feel for the plight of the north American grassland grouse.
The 204-page hardbound book features over 200 photographs of North American grouse species, including:
- Greater Prairie Chicken
- Attwater’s Prairie Chicken
- Gunnison Sage Grouse
- Plains Sharp-Tailed Grouse
Some of you may already be familiar with Nop’s work as a wildlife photographer with the Missouri Department of Conservation, and he has received numerous prestigious awards, including Picture of the Year International and Missouri Photojournalist of the year.
If you would like to meet Nop in person and see the book that took him 11 years to photograph, Songbird Station is hosting a book signing and reception this Friday, September 28 from 6pm – 8pm. All are welcome.
