My interest in the field of photography began in childhood, starting with film, then a ‘splatter’ of videography and finally the migration to DSLR photography.

I hope you enjoy viewing my interpretation of the Natural World through my lens.

    What a wonderful capture. It is really astonishing how they weave the hanging nest. Are these the weavers, when the male shows his work to his female, and she doesn’t like it, then rips it apart. Saw something like that on TV. The littel guy had my sympathy

  • Thank you Heidi, the exact same weaver yes, poor guy. :-)
