Capturing glimpses of wildlife is perhaps my favourite type of photography. While I don't have the patience of a National Geographic photographer to sit in a blind for 36 hours, I have been fortunate to have opportunities to photograph a variety of wildlife. I particularly like birds simply because they move so quickly. Being able to freeze a moment in time gives me the chance to study a spread wing or a wagging tongue which I wouldn't otherwise be able to see. Such rare moments are technology's gift to us.
While I generally prefer photographing animals in their natural habitat, zoos and sanctuaries offer opportunities to get very close and can provide situations which enable abstract and ambiguous shots to be taken.
The successful hunt and capture of a wild animal with a camera is a great challenge and there is nothing like this feeling of success!
