Nature Picture Library are proud to represent the work of Kim Taylor. Kim has specialised in photographing tricky subjects that most wildlife photographers find too challenging: he has pioneered techniques to photograph bats flying at night, frogs jumping into ponds, dragonflies and bees in flight not to mention subjects almost invisible to the human eye such as cat fleas and diatoms. Here is a small selection of some of his superb insect action photos.
