About this site

Wildlife photography might be challenging, whether you are photographing a small fly or a large predator such as a bear. The photographer must choose the proper set of equipment (camera, lens, flashes, tripod, etc.) and be able to use it perfectly. He must know where and when in the natural environment he can find the species of animal or plant he needs. The photographer must also know how to properly compose the shot and show the subject in the most natural way.

However, the difficulties for the naturalist photographer do not end at the moment of shooting. Very often, when you are trying to identify a butterfly, spider or flower you have photographed, it turns out to be a very difficult task. Not every photographer has illustrated guides at home. Moreover such guides do not exist for every region of the world and systematic group.

I developed this site as a place where I can share my photos of plants, mushrooms, arthropods and other creatures taken in the wild. Every specimen is identified to a species level or taxon of a higher level. Visitors to the site may not only admire the beautiful photographs, but use them to identify the animals and plants they encounter. In the future, there will be posts on various aspects of wildlife photography, such as the choice and use of photographic equipment, the use of photo editors, and so on.

I hope this site will be useful to a wide range of wildlife photographers and naturalists.
