Home of fiery spines These zebra crabs clearly haven’t heard the real estate agent’s advice that location is everything. They reside on a fiery red urchin covered in sharp, venomous spines. Still, it keeps away unwanted visitors. Lembeh Strait, Indonesia.

Hi, my name is Gary Brookshaw and I’m a part-time wedding and portrait photographer from Chester, UK. My Tumblr blog is about wildlife photography.

My photography started as a hobby and then I moved into professional Wedding and Portrait photography. Wildlife photography is how I relax though - it’s about the only time I switch off!

I treat all my wildlife photography like I would a professional portrait. I’m looking for great portraits, usually with good eye contact and interesting composition.

I primarily use a Canon 7D with a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II USM lens for most of my wildlife work. I also sometimes use the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens and a Canon EF Mark III 1.4x Extender.
