My early interest in wildlife almost exclusively involved bird-watching. However, while out birding in the countryside I could hardly fail to notice the diversity of other wildlife literally flying, crawling, hopping or walking around me in the trees and bushes. I became interested in butterflies, then carried that through in a sort of logical progression to moths. My vision magnified as insects caught my attention next; firstly with larger species on the wing such as dragonflies, damselflies and hoverflies; then progressively smaller species such as beetles, snails, slugs, ants and spiders. At the present time I think I can say that my interest is literally restricted by the size of the species and whether or not I can photograph it in any detail.
