A wild peacock in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka. These amazing colours are surprisingly not caused primarily by pigments, instead by tiny crystal-like structures in the feathers. These structures, spaced at different distances apart, cause different wavelengths of light to be absorbed and reflected, creating the amazing iridescent patterns our eyes see. Shot for , wild and

A wild peacock displaying in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka. Despite his incredible tail fan, the peahens just didn't seem interested. It's amazing to think that this male will shed and a grow a new fan each year, all in the name of reproduction! Shot during a leopard assignment for , wild and

An Asian elephant calf takes a drink with its mother in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan subspecies of elephant is the largest of the Asian elephant species with the biggest bulls weighing over 5000kg/11000lbs. That said, when born, this little calf would have weighed only 100kg/220lbs! Shot during a leopard project for , wild and

This Sri Lankan elephant calf was having a great time splashing around in the shallows. That was until this moment when a little bump from its mother meant it lost its footing. I imagine a more experience elephant would have just poked its trunk up above the surface to breathe. Instead, it struggled to its feet before exploding out of the water to get some air! Clearly shaken by the whole experience, it ran out of the pool and wouldn't come back in to join its mother! Shot during a leopard project for , wild and

More steller sea lion madness. Every day during this shoot in February, we saw more and more animals in the water. As the big bulls can grown up to 11ft/3.5m long and weigh over 1000kg/2200lbs, you might think being surrounded by 50 of these excitable predators is scary. The reality here is totally the opposite. I'd compare it to playing with 50 giant puppies! Shot by for an exciting new 360 experience for coming first to China this summer. Stay tuned! keeping me warm.

A bit of a steller sea lion fun from the west coast of Vancouver Island back in February. After pulling on my fins, mask and regulator, these young sea lions then decided it was time to pick on the starfish. Shot by for an exciting new 360 experience for coming first to China this summer. Stay tuned!
