Wildlife Images

I take wildlife to mean wild animals, or captive animals in zoos for some of my images of more exotic creatures; plants, trees and flowers are covered in my ‘flowers’ portfolio. I do tend to be a bit picky about differentiating between my wildlife and pets categories, so do have a look at the pets portfolio as well!

Please see my gallery pages if you’d like to purchase any of these images (note that not all the images seen in my portfolios can necessarily be offered for sale, particularly portraits). Click on the Chasing Rays Photography album to see all my portfolio categories. For social media,

    A Bevy of Otters

    3rd October, 2014

    Here, we see a black and white conversion of a bevy of otters, backlit by the setting sun. The image was converted to black and white and raised in contrast to highlight the backlighting and other dappled light that appears, and to emphasise the texture of the otters' fur.

    The Three Tenors

    25th August, 2013

    The penguin enclosure was quite busy on this day as a few babies had been born, which attracted people in their droves. This particular image attracted my attention as these penguins mimicked each other in a bleating chorus.
