We drift slowly along in a dug out on the Mabamba Swamp in Uganda. This rare bird, the shoebill, casts a cautionary glance and remains perfectly still; the only photographic problem is the hot midday sun.

I took this winter picture and used it to collect funds for an ethical treatment of animals charity. Pig farming has recently sprung up around the village I live in and I am vegetarian. I turned the image into a shilloutte in photoshop.

These crocuses were taken early on a frosty morning just as the sun was melting the small icicles on the petals. I needed to lie flat on the grass to take them and I angled myself so as to catch the soft colour of other crocuses in the background Crocus Vernus.
By way of contrast, it was the way the leaves had twisted around each other that attracted me to the Grape hyacinth on the right.
The International Garden Photographer of The Year Awards, 'Edible Category' exhibited at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew 2010 - Finalist
What attracted me to this bronze fennel Foeniculum vulgare was the detailed finger like stalks of the flower head, which produce a complex structure. The soft light from the sun gives the image a soft glow.
Royal Horticultural Society Awards 'Edible Category' - First Prize
Commended RHS 2007
This sea kale Crambe maritima growing on a local shingle beach caught my attention. It was the way the large green leaf curled around the small purple one that appealed, it made me think of a mother protecting her child.
On the right are Norfolk reeds Phragmites australis lit up at sun sets. When seen close-up the tiny seeds glitter.
