    #1 for me, Kevin. Nicely done.

    Wild Adder

    I remember when I first started looking for these interesting reptiles years ago, I was expecting something fairy large and eye-catching. Of course I was wrong and failed miserably. Then I volunteered for Natural England. Through working with experts and surveying, I learnt a fair bit about...

    Wild Pie material?

    The feral pigeons are looking increasing delicious interesting in these days of isolation. But if the supermarkets start running out of food....

    Wild Blue Jeans

    Also known as Strawberry Poison Dart Frog because some are uniformly red in colour. This 'Blue Jeans' morph individual was photographed in Costa Rica.

    Common seal at sunset.

    Wild Rainforest macro II

    One of the few occasions where I was able to identify a rainforest invert. I believe this is Chitaura brachyptera, a small but colourful grasshopper. Photographed in Sulawesi.

    Wild Man of the Forest (+2)

    Here's a wider view showing a Bornean Orang-utan swinging carefree in its natural habitat. It's actually much harder to capture a wide-angle shot like this than a traditional telephoto image, both technically and conceptually.

    Wild Man of the Forest (+2)

    Seen him more than a couple of occasions, a curious chap.

    Wild Proboscis Monkey

    She's not low down - this was photographed from the top deck of our boathouse, southern Borneo. No, we can hold our drinks reasonably well. :beer:

    Wild Proboscis Monkey

    One of the endemic primates we often come across in Borneo, is the Proboscis Monkey. Agile climbers and can jump considerable distance high up between trees.

    Wild Little Blue Eyes

    One of my earlier projects which lasted about 6 weeks. This den was in the woods behind my house. So it was really convenient. I could and did spend a lot of time with them, Sometimes I sat with my then six year old daughter watching them in the evenings. Fond memories. Though getting her to sit...

    Wild Rainforest macro

    Often, I come across many species of invertebrates that I'm unable to identify, like this caterpillar for example. Rainforest carries so many secrets.

    Wild Man of the Forest (+2)

    Another shot from this remote part of Indonesian Borneo. It's not often that you see these aboreal primates near water but I do see them forage for Nipa Palm hearts when the fruit trees are not in season.

    Wild Man of the Forest (+2)

    Many congratulations, Alastair. For a honeymoon, I'd recommend visiting the Malaysian state of Sabah (northeast of the island). Great established infrastructure and lots to do and see. Most can be done in sandals and shorts, including platforms designed for viewing rehabilitated Orang-utans...

    Wild Man of the Forest (+2)

    Between March and April of every year I visit Borneo. It's the world's third largest island. It's shared between three countries. I have worked the north, west and southern part fo the island. Sadly, the fauna and flora are under threat and many species are critically endangered, like the...

    Wild Too close

    When this happens, both of us get heart attack. This was an oldie. I was still learning about the art of pretending to be a bush. I didn't know where to place myself and frankly, wasn't sure what I was doing. But I was fairly successful at getting close to them. In this case, too close. So much...

    Wild Eagle Fight

    Yes, we were. Also worth noting that the Eagles have a wingspan of about 7ft.

    Wild Ermine

    A Norwegian colleague and I set up a temporary, pop-up hide before first light with the hope of catching a glimpse of an Arctic Fox, as we found tracks the day before. Just as it got a little lighter, this curious little fellow came to check us out. Of course we're happy to have its brief...

    Critique The Scent

    That was what I meant, Stu. To be fair, some animals are more expressive than others. Deer is not one of them. So one would have to rely on specific actions i.e. running, fighting etc.

    Wild Robin singing its little heart out

    I think if you lift the shadows it will really 'sing' :)

    Glen Etive Red Deer Stag.

    Always nice to see animals in landscape so this ticks my box, well done.

    Wild Eagle Fight

    Two juvenile White-tailed Sea Eagle squabbling. This was full frame at 125mm (70-200mm lens) with a D810.

    Nice one, Stuart. I like the mid-stride and relaxing pose.

    Mice aggression

    Would I like it to be more aesthetically improved? Yes, but then I can pick holes with every image I took. Can it be done? Possibly - it could take another 5 days, 5 weeks, or even 5 months. Who knows, it's wildlife. We're not talking about a captive setup of a mice in a conservatory like...

    Mice aggression

    Isn't it great that an image has generated so much debate. There are many reasons why I like this photograph. As a wildlife photographer myself, I see the merits from a different perspective, but I won't bore you. Often, I'm asked by workshop students/tour guests about the technical aspects of...

    Wild Curious Red

    The 'platform' is a piece of old log. Here's one taken another time from a different angle, with a telephoto.

    Wild Curious Red

    This is a spot where my friend has been nurturing for a while so I cannot take credit for it. He sets up some feeders to attract them in winter. It's nice to have some private space in the Cairngorms to be in their company. This little chap was rather curious about my camera setup, which is...

    Critique Norway Pano

    Thanks guys. Loosing some of the sky definitely helped. Quite like @jerry12953's suggested 2.7:1 ratio. Can't have more water unfortunately as I lost some of it in a couple of frames cause the boat was rocking and didn't have the foresight. There is a reasonable of details though on the...
