Here’s an image that has done the rounds, and rightfully so. What an incredible photo!
Some birds it is just impossible to ever see enough of, and this is definitely one of them. Arguably Southern Africa’s most spectacular sunbird, this image certainly does it full justice!
One of the most striking of all African birds, this lovely trogon is very seldom witnessed like this is the wild.
Well, well, well. Merely catching a glimpse of this bird is difficult enough, but to photograph it like this is almost miraculous! A splendid image of a very special bird!
This is another species that one simply cannot see enough of, particularly up close and in full sunlight, as with this wing-flagging male that Hugh photographed just outside his bedroom.
This smart looking raptor breeds in the coastal town of Mtunzini, a short drive from Eshowe where Hugh resides.
Wow! What more can we say – an amazing photo of an amazing bird!
A brilliant capture of this very smart raptor!
For obvious reasons, Hugh is justly famous for the clarity of his close-up shots of really beautiful birds. Just look at the detail on this turaco’s face – gorgeous!
Green Malkoha with Hyperolius frog sp.
One of Hugh’s specialities is photographing elusive birds at their nests through the use of carefully positioned hides. This, in turn, allows us glimpses into their lives that we would possibly never otherwise obtain – such as this scene of an adult malkoha bringing a meal to its chicks.
A bird that is seldom seen in the open like this, Hugh has certainly done the species full justice with this gorgeous portrait shot of a lovely female.
A stunning photo of a stunning bird; this is another species that is very difficult to see well, let alone photograph like this!
Southern Bald Ibis
A really great shot of one of Southern Africa’s most sought-after endemics.
One of Southern Africa’s finest and most charismatic endemics, this fantastic image perfectly captures the essence of this very smart and proud looking species.
