December 2018 - "Jaguar"


The jaguar (Panthera onca) is a wild cat species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas. The jaguar's present range extends from Southwestern United States and Mexico in North America, across much of Central America, and south to Paraguay and northern Argentina in South America. Though there are single cats now living within the western United States, the species has largely been extirpated from the United States since the early 20th century. It is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List; and its numbers are declining. Threats include loss and fragmentation of habitat.

Overall, the jaguar is the largest native cat species of the New World and the third largest in the world. This spotted cat closely resembles the leopard, but is usually larger and sturdier. It ranges across a variety of forested and open terrains, but its preferred habitat is tropical and subtropical moist broadleaf forest, swamps and wooded regions. The jaguar enjoys swimming and is largely a solitary, opportunistic, stalk-and-ambush predator at the top of the food chain. As a keystone species it plays an important role in stabilizing ecosystems and regulating prey populations.

May 2018 - "Orchid"


An example of the many orchids that can be seen at Kew Gardens in London. Some years ago I attended a Royal Photographic Society visit to the gardens which included the opportunity to photograph specimens in the nursery. The nursery is not open to the public but a special arrangement was made for the benefit of members of the RPS.

This particular image was produced using a technique known as image stacking.

February 2018 - "Tisted Hoar"
