It’s Global Tiger Day today (29th July) so here’s an old favourite from a few years back…

Mother and Cub in perfect harmony…

These are Sumatran Tigers at Chester Zoo. There are less than 400 of this species in the wild. Chester Zoo have raised 4 cubs over the past 3 years.

At current rates, ALL tiger species living in the wild could be extinct within 5 years! Crazy.

Really sorry to hear that Ares, the stunning jaguar from WHF Big Cat Sanctuary, passed away last Friday… :-(

A truly magnificent cat who will be sorely missed.

Thrilled to reach my first 1,000 followers today after a few weeks of posting…thank you!

Big chimp kiss for you all! ;-)

This is Mia, the gorgeous female cheetah at WHF Big Cat Sanctuary…

When you get water in your eye after a little bit of backstroke… ;-)

Who says cats don’t like water?!

A wonderful looking Fishing Cat named ‘Neptune’ at WHF Big Cat Sanctuary…

In the second shot you can see his face covered in pond weed after diving for a fish.

A handsome lion named ‘Tiny’ at WHF Big Cat Sanctuary…

So that’s how you reach the grass…

"Bad Hair Day 2"

Another version of ‘Tiny’ with his magnificent man soaked at WHF Big Cat Sanctuary. This time with just one eye open…just waking up!

A young Sumatran Tiger cub at Chester Zoo peeking over a ledge into the morning sun…

A Red Panda at a snowy Chester Zoo doing what they do best… ;-)

For anyone living near Manchester in the UK…

I’m thrilled to be presenting my work and zoo photography tips at the South Manchester Camera Club on Monday 14th July at 8pm in the Didsbury Methodist Church.

Would be great to meet some of you there if possible!

Rhino calf Embu was the THIRD Eastern Black Rhino calf to be born at Chester Zoo in a 10 month period. Amazing success story and super cute!

I wish I had videoed this sequence as he kept pushing his mother to get her to play when all she wanted to do was sleep!

Some lion love at Chester Zoo…love this shot!

Lazy summer days at Chester Zoo…
