Nature

By Alex Wilmot

Stunning pictures show the reflections of local wildlife.

Photographer Shane Stanbridge, 30, from Hastings, East Sussex, has been a wildlife photographer for the past nine years and spends hours trying to capture the perfect picture.

Shane managed to capture the perfect moment in these pictures, capturing the reflections of badgers, red squirrels, osprey, heron, and even a rat.

The pictures were taken at various locations – including Scotland, South Lincolnshire and Hampshire.

Shane said: “Most of the time, it’s a matter of waiting hours on end to capture that perfect photo and I don’t mind waiting quietly for that moment to happen.

“It’s a matter of knowing your camera gear and being on the right settings.

“I make sure I stay out of sight so the wildlife can’t see me.

“It would be a dream to be able to go travelling and photograph wildlife full time”.
