Red Deer: this is another from a couple of years ago. I've not had the chance to get out much over the last few weeks so have been looking back at older images. On this morning, I'd been photographing this stag on its own in the long grass, as the sun came up. It ended up near one of the roads that runs through Richmond Park, where its attention was partially diverted from bellowing by this passing cyclist.

Hyena dominating a sub-ordinate – This was certainly an interesting morning in Zambia‘s South Luangwa National Park and it’s fair to say that in Africa one simply never knows what is around the corner. Such is the bewildering array of species that the difficulty is always trying to discern which opportunity, or which animal will likely produce the most interesting photographic opportunity. On this morning it was unusually overcast and having seen very few hyenas during our time there we decided to stick with a small clan that appeared to be on the move. When they reached the meadow in which we were waiting they fortuitously stopped and spent about the next thirty minutes playing, chasing, squabbling an on occasion dominating the sub-ordinates, as is happening here. Apparently it’s virtually impossible to tell the hyena sexes apart but as they are a matriarchal society let’s assume for now that the dominant animal, the one that has only one eye in this image, is a female. It’s not like hyenas don’t look sinister enough just as they are, their formidable jaws among the most powerful in the animal kingdom but this one has had the misfortune of losing an eye, adding more to her ferocious look. Again like so many mammals hyenas are much maligned, misunderstood and needlessly vilified. Portrayed as little more blood thirsty rapacious scavengers they are in fact prolific predators in their own right, not only that but they are among the most tender and loving of all parents that I have ever witnessed. I can understand of course that an image such as this might not be to everyone’s cup of tea but there is no malicious intent here, simply the telling off of a bratty teenager, but when a hyena mother tells you off you stay told!

Did you know that there were once nine subspecies of tigers: Bengal, Siberian, Indochinese, South Chinese, Sumatran, Malayan, Caspian, Javan and Bali. Of these, the last three are extinct, one is extinct in the wild, and the rest are endangered.

Here you see a Bengal Tigress on the move, marking her territory.

'For every single time you see a Tiger, it has already seen you a thousand times'. I can't recollect where I read this, but it was probably somewhere in the countless jungle stories I've read written by the likes of Corbett and Anderson. In Indian forests, which are typically thick and dense for the most part, nothing can be more true. But when we do happen to see each other all the near misses feel worth it. #wildlife_addicts #wild #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildernessculture #wilderness #natgeoyourshot #nationalgeographic #natgeowild #nature #naturephotography #naturelover #bbcearth

On my way to Honolulu Airport in #hawaii, I decided to stop for a coffee. Got out the car at Magic Island to relax while I drank my brew, when these TWO Green turtles popped up. Now that is a real #incidentalnaturalist moment! 💚 🐢🐢

Mute swan in dawn light – This image is yet another example of why I chose to spend so long working close to home and with one of our most overlooked species, the mute swan. Readily accessible on most bodies of water throughout the UK these fascinating birds are bewilderingly beautiful to work with, especially if the light is right. On this morning you can immediately see the effect that photographing in glancing dawn sunlight creates, especially when the rising sun filters through the trees that line this secluded lake. Pools of sunlight form on the lake, it’s surface blackened by the absence of wind, the swans gliding slowly around in apparent tranquillity. At right one of the cygnets has already passed through the sunlight and fallen somewhat into underexposure, light which is now bathing the preening adult and the cygnet behind her. It is the adult that I have exposed for, it is on her that I seek to retain all of the important detail and what happens to the exposure on the two cygnets is beyond my control. If I could give any aspiring wildlife photographer one single piece of advice then it would be this; seek out the wildlife close to where you live, invest time watching and learning and be there at dawn and dusk. Learn to notice the light and how it falls, the effect that it creates in different conditions and on different subjects. This is how you can really hone your skills, develop your learning, realise the beauty that exists on your doorstep and find new stories to tell. Immerse yourself as much as your time will allow, every minute of time invested will be well spent.

A male lion licks his blood-stained lips as he feeds on a large elephant bull here in Hwange, Zimbabwe. As the dry season tightens its grip many animals take strain & the predators are always ready to take full advantage. The calls of hyenas feeding on the carcass last night carried to the ears of this lion pride. They arrived in the morning & will continue to feed on this elephant for days to come.

Our human emotions tend to cloud the manner in which nature should be interpreted. This is a savage kingdom where the weak & weary have little chance of survival. What seems cruel or “inhumane” to us is simply nature at its purest. The fact that scenes such as this still have a place to play out on this crazy world of ours is reason enough for me to keep sharing, to keep educating, to keep bringing these stories to your doorstep in it’s rawest form.

If you’re sensitive to this I dare you to not look away, to not block this image, to not scroll on. Look deep into these eyes. You can’t tell me you don’t feel it. You can’t tell me you don’t connect with this utter beast pictured here. 
Here in Africa it’s survival of the strong. One day this lion will be but dust to the earth but today, he is the king & enjoying the spoils of his kingdom!

A Galápagos mockingbird framed in a cactus on the island of Genovesa.  It is the most widespread of the four species of mockingbird found in the archipelago.  Instead of flying, it is often seen running along the ground.  It is an omnivore & eats everything from seeds, fruit, nectar from cacti & other plants, invertebrates to eggs, baby turtles & Galápagos sea lion placentas! 😋
