WiLDiMAGES - Andy Young Photography

I am an evolutionary biologist seeking to capture something of the world.

My research frequently takes me to Africa's wild places, but much of my photography involves hunting for peculiar mammals on other continents. I have a particular interest in camera trapping and noctural photography. My two primary subjects are Humans and The Wild.

Meru National Park, Kenya

We spent our first few days of the MSc Behavioural Ecology field course up in the beautiful Meru National Park in Northern Kenya looking for some of the more unusual beasts of arid North.  We managed to find reticulated giraffe, lesser kudu, Grevy's zebra and a wonderful gerenuk; all new mammals for me. A few small volcanos also betrayed the underground activities of naked mole-rats, but sadly the sabre-toothed sausages themselves were nowhere to be seen. I'd love to come back here - its peaceful and wild.
