Featured Photographer: Nigel Tate, Portrait Artist
There are nearly a thousand photographers contributing to E-Fauna
and E-Flora BC. Some send beautiful
illustrations of a species, some send good habitat shots and
illustrative work, and some send in photographic captures of rare
species or wildlife in action, including bathing black bears.
One photographer, though, contributes what can only be called wildlife
portraits and these are invaluable additions to E-Fauna BC. This is the
work by Nigel Tate, a BC photographer whose work on local birds
(eagles, herons, loons, hawks, hummers and more) gives insight into their
lives. Whether it's fishing herons, or hungry gulls, the results of
Nigel's work are captivating. The sequence of heron photos below
illustrates what we mean.
Nigel not only takes 'photos', but also uses these to produce bird art that is really stunning as the example below shows.
