I’ve been interested in both pPhoto of Chris at Ragley Hallhotography and wildlife all my adult life.  These became a combined passion after Marian and I watched Gray whales off Tofino, Vancouver Island.  We waxed lyrical about the wildlife and natural landscapes we had seen to Marian’s Aunt and Uncle in Vancouver.  “Why don’t you go on wildlife holidays”…….. Maurice suggested .  The seed was sown and we have now been privileged to watch and photograph wildlife on all 7 continents. 

The photos I took of black bears in Vancouver were not of a high standard.  My sons, Philip and David chorused, “they’re guinea pigs not bears”.  That lesson was well learned, get decent camera kit, don’t stint on lens quality, and get close to the subject! 

I hope you enjoy the photo galleries presented here.  More to come as the list of places and species to visit continues to grow.

To come :-   Marians video clips showing the context of some of the photos.

Many thanks to Philip and David for giving me this website and Marian for design and
web mastering.
