The major part of my portfolio is on wildlife, probably because it is the easiest subject to photograph. I do not negotiate with the animals or ask them to pose for me.

The Shorebirds

The naming and other details are documented on my best effort basis. If you find any of them were not named correctly, please leave a comment with your suggestion.

However, lightbox does not display the respective caption or documentation.
