Opening thoughts……
My name is Mike Needham and I would like to welcome to my website.
I had been planning to get the output from my wildlife photography onto the web for about 12 (yes twelve) years or more, but despite several stalled attempts it never happened. Well, in February of 2011 I decided that “this year will be different” and so here it is. The site is continually evolving as I get some of my library from years gone by uploaded and start to add information around locations visited and perhaps some talk on equipment and / or technique. I do hope that you enjoy your visit and keep returning from time to time as new material is added. I have certainly enjoyed taking the pictures over years and hope to continue to do so for many more.
The pictures on the site are all taken by me, except of course those few (thankfully very few) where I am ‘in the frame’.  The pictures are what they are, some shot in the wild others in captivity, hopefully it will always be clear to you which are which, certainly there will never be an intention to mislead (more)……
Enjoy your visit and if you have any comments please feel free to e-mail me.
