Kittens and cubs at WHF

There have been many kittens and cubs born at WHF and we have been lucky enough to photograph some of them. My favourite are the Pallas Cat kittens, specifically, Tula and Wei-Shand’s first litter, which consisted of two boys – Caspian and Aduva; and two girls – Pamir and Ulan…

Macro, Macro and more Macro

We had so much fun doing our half day macro photography with Janet Robini that we decided to do a full day of macro with her.  The advantage of having done the half day was that we had a better idea of what we wanted to photograph by way of…

British Wildlife Centre in Autumn

I didn’t think I would be going back to the British Wildlife Centre this year after my last visit, but when they announced the arrival of a new Scottish Wildcat male for Kendra, well… how could I resist? It was also a pleasant surprise to see Flo and Frodo’s cubs. …

British Wildlife At Wildwood Trust

The Wildwood Trust is home to an extensive collection of British wildlife.  Animals that have inhabited Britain for the last 10,000 years and animals that have been hunted to extinction in the UK. I had heard many good things about this ancient forest, which is located between the historic city…

British Wildlife Animals and their Babies

Due to circumstances beyond our control, I was unable to go with David when he went to the British Wildlife Centre to photograph their babies.  It was 10 days later before I was able to follow suit.  I prayed that the weather would be kinder to me than it had…

Wingham Wildlife Park

Wingham Wildlife Park is a small zoo located between Canterbury and Sandwich.  Until the arrival of the tiger cubs Troy and Blade, it was unfortunately best known as the zoo that lost a Meerkat, which was subsequently found dead in a dog waste bin. The zoo faced a lot of…

Frogs and other Tropical Species

For my next foray into macro photography, we decided to have a go at photographing frogs, a chameleon, gecko and a toad.  I found the toad to be the most difficult to photograph as I wanted a decent reflection and had trouble getting the angle right.  I think I got… 

Eye of the Tiger

WHF Smarden

The WHF (Wildlife Heritage Foundation) was where David had his first proper nature photography lesson back in 2009, so it was only fitting that my first proper lesson was also here. My photo day was bought for me by David as a wedding anniversary present. Since that day, we have been…
