A Walk on the Wild Side

Long before I ever set foot in a studio and long before I retired from work to go to university, I cut my photography teeth on nature and wildlife in the nature reserves of the East Midlands and surrounding counties. Spending a day in winter finding and watching birds or, in summer, hunting for butterflies, moths and insects remains one of my abiding passions.
When it comes to wildlife competitive photography, I have only intermittent success, pitted as I am against some of the wonders of the wider world. My domestic animals struggle to hold their own against monkeys in frozen ponds, horses in the Camargue and the many exotic beasts seen on safari.
Every now and then, however, one of my favourite pictures will do well at one of the International Salons and it gives me that little extra bit of pleasure to know they’re having their moment in the sunlight.
The five pictures here were all successful in my first year of competing for the accreditation of AFIAP.

Mating Migrant Hawkers was accepted into two Salons
Broad Bodied Chaser was accepted into two Salons
Brown Hare Running was accepted into four Salons
Brimstone on Scabious was accepted into four Salons
A Wasp Masticating was accepted into eight Salons
