Painstakingly shot over a period of five years on a nature reserve in Tower Hamlets, captured by means of camouflage, bait and remote camera shutter control. It includes a number of favourite subjects that became less camera shy and more camera friendly as the years went by.
What’s the number one personal accessory we like to use the most on a British holiday, a weekend break or day trip? Not counting the car, credit card and mobile phone that is. What?! Sun tan lotion?! Behave yourself! No, next to an umbrella it’s a camera. So what else but a busman's holiday snapshot album of wildlife encountered away from home.

Bites and Stings
Ever tried to photograph invertebrates in a field on a warm sunny day? Sit in the grass long enough and you’ll soon discover the prickle of thistles, the pain of nettles and the bites and stings of ants, bees, wasps, beetles, mosquito’s and a host of other flies. There are all sorts of spiders to contend with too!
Wildlife opportunities watched for and created on weekend walks around the neighbourhood and city. It features a surprising number of approachable subjects. From a feisty Harris hawk on the verge of being wild to a friendly grey squirrel on the verge of being tame. Be it native, escape or invasive, it's wildlife on the streets from my doorstep to the park in world of asphalt, concrete, glass, iron, wood, plastic, brick and stone.
