Wildlife photo 'collections'
This is the 'species' gallery section of my website where I have a number of bird photo collections for groups of similar or related species. There are just five broad categories covering the individual species that I wanted to include. The first four groups are logical and well defined, but the ‘other birds’ collection is random, as it incorporates non-related species that I couldn’t combine without having a lot more groups.
There are also two special collections - one for animals and one for birds. These include photo sets and associated write-ups for certain species that I wanted to focus on in a bit more detail.
In general, most of my animal shots are better viewed under their respective location within my ‘selections’ gallery rather than trying to group them here as a collection, whereas many of my bird photos, which are far more numerous, are well suited to being grouped into individual sets.
Finally, there is another special collection entitled IUCN Red List which, together with associated information, includes sets for various threatened species that I’ve been fortunate enough to both see and photograph in the wild.
NAVIGATION NOTES : Photos will open in their own pop-up window, which provides a direct link to the next photo (either via the photo navigation buttons or keyboard ‘back’ and ‘forward’ keys) without having to go back to the set thumbnails. Each collection includes a drop-down ‘related galleries’ menu to provide quick access to other similar collections, or to other related photo sets within that particular collection. In addition, there’s a ‘back to parent gallery’ link under each collection’s thumbnails that will return you to this gallery header page, and also a similar link under the actual photo thumbnails that will return you to that species group home page - alternatively, use your browser ‘back button’, or simply navigate directly back to this gallery home page by using the ‘collections’ menu tab.
Please remember that this 'collections' gallery is purely for species-related photo sets. The other gallery entitled ‘selections’ contains my location-based image sets.
