I doubt it would make any difference to scan with my oldish iPhone or my ipad mini. The cameras on both are able to focus pretty close. (I do not have the book in question so cannot check)

Here's a sampling of raptor plates: Martial Eagle, Booted Eagle, African Hawk-Eagle, Jackal Buzzard (flight), Common Buzzard (perched)
Hadn't seen these before. Had high hopes and am now truly disappointed. I can't think why the publisher/authors found these acceptable - the shapes, of both perched and flying birds, are crude and stereotyped compared with the realism and subtleties of those by Peter Hayman that they've replaced. These really are an outdated style, whereas Hayman's were well ahead of their time.
