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.

We moved down to Amboseli for the last few days of the course, with Kilimanjaro looming high through the clearing clouds as we approached.

Our camera traps revealed one of the higlights of the trip - striped hyena visiting the camp rubbish pit. Other visitors included African civet and white-tailed mongooses.

I returned to Northern Kenya in January with our Masters in Evolutionary Biology field course. After a great day in Samburu, with good views of aardwolves and northern specials such as gerenuk, golden pipit and fan-tailed raven, we headed down to Twala in Laikipia to walk with an olive baboon troop used in Shirley Strum's long-term research on these fascinating primates. Thanks to the team at Twala manyatta for their kind hosting in this beautiful part of the world.
