Sociable weaver birds often have large nests around campsites, and are friendly little birds, a bit like our sparrows. They turned out to be good friends as well as good photo subjects! We'd been camping in the same spot for a couple of days and the birds often came to clear up our crumbs, but one day they started to mass beside a log and make a terrible racket. Looking more closely we saw there was a horned viper very well camouflaged under it. We'd collected kindling from that area so we were glad our little friends had given us the warning. The snake soon got fed up with the noise and moved on, and we were a little more careful picking up wood from then on.

nature and wildlife photography
I have a passion for wildlife and nature and enjoy combining my photography with the inspiration I draw from the natural world.
African nature and wildlife are the subjects of much of my work, but I’m equally fascinated by the nature and wildlife in and around my home.
Sometimes a conventional photograph doesn’t reflect fully what I see in my mind’s eye, and I like to experiment with both in-camera and post-processing techniques to express the mood and spirit I want to convey.
