I've been experimenting with getting closer.
Over the last few days I've been picking some of the pretty faces from my wildlife collection.
When photographing wildlife I usually try and capture the whole creature so that the image includes some context or background along with the animal itself.
Sometimes this tells a complete story, why the animal is doing what it is. In other cases the image tells too much of the story, these close ups don't tell the whole story, they leave you to fill in the rest.
The images here will be part of the collection that I have on show during Oxford Artweeks in May 2014. If you really can't wait that long, and happen to be in Oxford, some of the these images are on show in Coco Noir - a splendid little coffee shop and chocolatier on the London Road in Headington.
