Markus Varesvuo – Black Grouse Mama

Andrew Raynor   Often the males get all the admiration, because the patterns and colours in their plumage are more flamboyant and attractive; this serves of course the very purpose of showing off, of standing out amongst the other males and making sure that females choose them over their less handsome rivals. Females tend to […]

Alex Mustard – French Bulldog

Andrew Raynor   A stargazer hides in the sand at night. This fish in an ambush predator that lies buried waiting for a smaller fish to wander too close. Lit here with a single flash, fitted with a snoot, the eyes cause shadows that make me think of the face of a french bulldog. Location: Anilao, Philippines. […]

When I was there, the colony had only about 800 kings. And this year, the colony was almost 1000 breeding pairs, mostly of them already with medium size […]


Andrew Raynor Just Keep Swimming Imagine a world where there is no waste. Imagine equal value between nature and necessity. Imagine reading your dog’s mind. Imagine we are not alone in the universe. Imagine if we could see forward in time so we could go back for a do-over. Imagine a species bill of rights. […]

Theo Bosboom – Endless

Andrew Raynor   Moving water fascinates me deeply and it has been one of my favourite subjects for a long time. One of the things that attracts me is that the movement goes on endlessly – the water in this tiny waterfall keeps falling – but still it looks different at each visit, depending on […]

Oriol Alamany – Spring in the mountains

Andrew Raynor   Heather and broom in bloom, with ash and birch trees in Somiedo. Last spring, after spending a week looking for and photographing grizzly bears in the mountains of Asturias, I spent the last day there to calmly stroll and photograph the colorful explosion of the spring in these mountains of northern Spain. In this composition […]
