Limited Edition Prints

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but some of the moments I've been lucky enough to capture are perhaps a little more special than others. The selection of wildlife shots below are those that I am most proud of. They are not on my online store, but are available for purchase directly as limited edition prints.

Leopard Prince. £200
Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
There are few animals that combine the strength, elegance and stealth of the African leopard. The calm gaze of this young male draws you in. Yet his eyes are penetrating, making you want to respectfully stand back.  I love the long slanting grass, which creates an ethereal mood.  Beautiful in black and white.

Portrait of a Mother. £160
Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, South Africa
 
A symbol of power. Yet it is a power that nurtures. A power that is gentle. A power that is wise. I simply love elephants. I spent a year and a half following and researching herds in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, where this photo was taken. I was always fascinated by the mothers, how bold and assured they were. Yet so gentle and nurturing with their young ones. I love the smooth ivory and textured skin of this mother. Her eyes tell a story, proclaiming knowledge and wisdom matching her years.

Giraffe Romance. £180
Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, South Africa
I have photographed hundreds of giraffes, but none so rewarding as this pair. I have a photo of them mating a minute or two before this photo was taken. Love was certainly in the air! The female is on the left, with a less robust head and longer tufts on her horns. The male's horns are bald due to fighting with other males (a phenomenon known as 'necking'). I wonder how hard he had to fight for this beauty.

Get our good side. £130
Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, South Africa
An unusual angle on a highly- photographed creature. This elephant family group was marching briskly to a nearby river for a midday drink and wallow.  Groups consist of related-adult females and their offspring. Males leave the herd around 10-15 years of age. As a researcher on the park, I was privileged to follow many a family group down to the water.

Gotcha! Lightning Little Egret. £130
Port Meadow, Oxford, UK
It was a glorious spring morning and the meadow was flooded. Small fish were abounding, and this little egret was taking full advantage. I couldn't believe the beauty, stillness, and symmetry of the reflection. It took about 300 photographs to get one that was just right :)
