Hi everyone!

I recently introduced myself to the Local Patch community with my January 18 blog post. I'll be posting a new article every month. I usually aim for the first Wednesday of the month. Please stop by and check-out my blog. I'd love to hear about your experiences in the comments sections.

To kick off this chain of blog posts I want to share a popular post from 2017 that was featured on WordPress Discover:

I am loving reading your blogs and have made some great connections already. It is wonderful to see so many people sharing creatures, great and small, with the world.

Happy blogging!
David

This is a special post for me. Published on my 3rd anniversary as a wildlife blogger I revisit the family of birds that started it all for me back in 2015; The Hummingbirds. This time I head to Panama to capture some stunning images:

This piece is about an encounter with Capuchin monkeys. It asks us to consider how we interact with wildlife and the impact of feeding wild animals:

I would value your thoughts on the issue. Please join the conversation on the blog.

Check-out my new post about the American Robin. This beautiful bird was named after its European cousin but I think it has more in common with the Song thrush or Blackbird:

Looking forward to you joining the conversation on the blog.

"When I’m taking wildlife photographs I try to find a balance of getting the shots that I want but also being there in the moment, enjoying the experience. I always take some time to see the animal with my eyes rather than through lens glass. I was enchanted by the life that sparkled from two chestnut eyes."

Here is another post from my travels in Panama where I encountered Brown-throated Three-toed Sloths:

The story of a childhood dream that started in an exotic pet store in London in the 1980s but came to be realised in the steamy rainforests of Panama:

My latest blog post is about a quintessentially British bird - the Mute swan:

This beautiful, royal bird isn't loved everywhere, though. In some parts of the world it is an invasive species that is viewed as a problem to be dealt with.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
