A male European bee-eater passes food to his partner as part of a pair bonding ritual (Kiskunság National Park, Hungary) – David spent three hours waiting patiently in the hide before he got this shot

“The floating hide allowed me to become a part of the environment and cause virtually zero disturbance to any of the wildlife on the lake”


4. An unlikely pair

5. David’s friend

A little owl flies across to snaffle some food after hearing David’s whistle. Although this owl is wild, David has trained it to fly over to him (Sussex, UK)

“As humans we are drawn to predators probably like no other group of animals. They are the epitome of form and function, and have a level of perfection that we revere”

6. Winged wonder
