Photography, in particular nature photography has been a passion of mine for most of my life. Only thing was I never had the time (or the money) to persue it.
Over the past couple of years the first of those two problems has been solved (still working on the second) and I have been lucky enough to spend plenty of time wandering my garden, the local bush and everywhere I can, taking photos of birds, bugs and anything else that flies, crawls, hops or slithers around the place.
The idea of a photoblog (I think) is to upload photos as you take them, I however, will upload many of my pics from the past couple of years, before starting on recent images.
Many Facebook friends have enjoyed the fruits of my labour, the next step is this web page.....hope you enjoy it.
Wherever possible I have tried to identify the creatures on this website, however if you do not concur, please let me know via email.
