Story Behind the Picture: Polar Bear Glow

Nikon D2x, Nikon 200-400mm @400mm, f4, 1600th second It’s intuitive to think of polar bears walking across vast snow fields or swimming through ice flows. Seeing the Arctic’s apex predator on dry land in the warm glow of late evening sunshine is not an image than immediately springs to mind. And yet there is a…

Story Behind the Picture: Beach Bum Chameleon

Nikon D3, Nikon 14mm, f11, 125th second Chameleons are one of the animal groups that help define Madagascar (the other major one being lemurs of course). But they are masters of concealment so finding them during the day is tough. It is actually easier to find them when they’re sleeping at night, but they are…

Story Behind the Picture: Tiger Blur

Nikon D2x, Nikon 70-200mm @ 100mm, f11, 1/4 second I envisaged this picture ten years before I was able to take it. It remains one of my favourite tiger images.

Zoo Quest for a Dragon was first broadcast in 1956 (well before I was born) and it took Sir David and the film crew some four months to reach the Indonesian island from the UK. Today, the journey is easily manageable…

Singalila 2018 Recce Trip Report: Worth Pandering Too?

A young red panda in Singalila Forest We are very fortunate to be around at this time. OK we have to put up with bloody Brexit, buffoons like Boris and Trump and hideous, vacuous TV like Love Island (thank goodness for the off switch), but like no other generation we have the opportunity to indulge…

Borneo 2018 Trip Report: Head in the Clouds, Feet in the Mud

Tropical rainforests are my favourite habitat and those that remain in Sabah, Borneo (the ones that have thus far avoided being felled to make way for oil palm) are amongst the very best there are anywhere in the world. I’ve been visiting Borneo now for 30 years and it remains one of my favourite haunts,…

Yellowstone 2018 Trip Report: Northern Exposure

A cottonwood encrusted with hoar frost in the Lamar Valley In a previous life, I think I might have been a cowboy. I love the American West: the grandeur of the landscape, the culture, the turbulent recent history, the spectacular wildlife, and of course the movies. Whenever, I visit Montana and Wyoming, I genuinely feel…
