The natural world never fails to amaze, with its beauty, ingenuity and magnificence. Over a million wildebeest migrating across the plains of the Serengeti in pursuit of rain, male Emperor Penguins huddling together for two months without food during the Antarctic winter to incubate their eggs, or hundreds of macaws gathering to eat clay on the banks of a river in Peru to neutralise the toxins in their diet are just some of the awe-inspiring phenomena that are taking place out there in the world we live in.
Will Burrard-Lucas is a professional wildlife photographer from the UK. His fascination with wildlife began in childhood when he was fortunate enough to spend some years living in Africa. His interest in wildlife has never waned and he has travelled extensively over the years to see and photograph creatures from all corners of the globe.

“It is hard to describe the excitement and sense of trepidation I felt as the foreboding volcanic peaks loomed up out of the water and my boat chugged slowly towards them. The island was shrouded in dark clouds and even the sea seemed to have turned black. It looked like a prehistoric land; a land fit for dragons.” – Page 63 speaking about Indonesia: Komodo National Park.
