Now Discovering the Botanical Beach in British Columbia, Canada, with @tomparkr.
Located northwest of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada, the Botanical Beach features tidal pools, and intertidal marine creatures and plants. One of the famous destinations on the entire West Coast, it is best visited during low tide due to its tide pools filled like jewel boxes. #thediscoverer#nowdiscovering

Mute swan family at dawn – It can be all too easy and tempting for us as photographers to only ever post images to Social Media which we know, or which we believe will be popular. It’s a trap that I know that both I and a number of my colleagues can easily fall in to, hence we’ll often typically favour images which shows the animal up close, perhaps displaying something similar to human behaviour, an aspect or character that the viewer can then connect with, engage with, even ‘like’. The downside of this approach of course is that we can then become seen as one-dimensional photographers, one trick ponies or vain ego-maniacs, always prepared to lay our creativity to one side in pursuit of engagement. I myself, were I to pigeon-hole as favouring just one particular type of image, then it would be images such as these that I favour the most, that I strive for and that I take greatest pride in. The opening carousel of images on my website home page consists largely of images such as these, indeed this image as one of my all-time favourite images makes the cut. So why is it one of my favourites? Firstly it’s taken close to my Derbyshire home and with an often overlooked yet spectacular species, the mute swan. I love it’s ethereal feel and that, as it so often the case, it is dawn in our bustling country where most tranquillity, the most isolation can be found. Alone I sat by this lake, an unnoticed observer, the last remnants of morning mist shrouding the lake whilst the protective book-ends that is the adult swans flanked their vulnerable babies. In the water meanwhile a sunlit field is reflected, itself visible through the dense and verdant vegetation that flanks this isolated pool, a good place indeed to raise one’s precious family. To Hell with the likes, give no mind to engagement, post only of what you are proud, of what is personal to you. Share only your vision, your passion and be true to yourself, you are after all only here once! @discovery@bbcearth@earthpix@natgeowild@thephotosociety
A species of Capitonidae typical of the Neotropical that inhabits the humid forests is solitary habits and presents a very obvious sexual dimorphism, feeds on fruits and insects and nests in holes that other birds make in the trees.
The Red Headed Barbet is one of the protagonists in our Photography Tours in Colombia, discover it with us @naturalphototourscolombia
