About Me


I have been fascinated with wildlife since I was a small boy and thankfully that fascination is still with me now that I am retired. The travel bug struck when I went to work in Malawi for a couple of years in the late 1970s and my career as a research biologist working on insect pest management provided further opportunities to visit many interesting parts of the world.

My wife and I now indulge in frequent trips to see and photograph wildlife, purely as a hobby, and this website displays some of the more acceptable shots from those trips.
