I know i'm not a bird expert because I work with plenty who are. This collection of bird images from my last photo tour in Africa is by no means complete, but is intended to share the amazing diversity and spectacular characters that are flittering around the wilds of Kenya. The photos were taken in the short breaks in between game drives, when walking back to my tent or when watching the dawn roll forward over breakfast. Occasionally we would stop the Landcruiser to photograph a bustard or roller. It seems the more you get interested in the natural world the more your eyes get distracted by the ornate and charming avarians.

"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
