A lifelong naturalist, Andy Sands has been photographing wildlife for more than 25 years. His passion is British wildlife, and he particularly enjoys photographing birds in song and the small mammals that we seldom see. In recent years he has focussed extensively on coverage of insects and other invertebrates, documenting their lifecycles and behaviour. Being an experienced field naturalist has enabled him to take intimate portraits of wild animals in natural surroundings.
