Returning to my field research site in the Kalahari desert, I took my SLR camera trap in the hope of catching something special. Working with my good friend Dylan Smith, who knows the area and its beasts like the back of his hand, we managed to get some beautiful shots of the female leopard that is gradually repopulating the reserve. She appeared a few years ago, perhaps having worked her way down from Bostwana. With a male who is also occasionally seen, she has now successfully reared at least two litters on the reserve. And from the looks of our images she may just have produced her third. Its fabulous to have these beautiful cats back on the land after so many years away.

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.
