Garden Pictures from South Africa

This gallery gives me a chance to display images taken in the gardens around my home. In 2011 I moved from a city apartment to a cottage on a friend's smallholding in the countryside of KwaZulu-Natal.

My drab brick and concrete surroundings have been replaced by informal indigenous gardens, leafy trees, and grassy fields. This provides wonderful opportunities to wander around with a camera, photographing the colorful garden birds, flowers, shrubs, and insects.

A Privilege
I'm very much a part-time wildlife photographer who is lucky enough to visit the bush two or three times a year. The rest of the time I'm at home, so the opportunity to take nature pictures in beautiful surroundings is indeed a privilege.
