About the author (2010)

Arnold Wilson, a professional biologist, has spent his working life in

teaching and lecturing. Photography has been his lifelong

interest and he has contributed to most of the current photographic

magazines and has written five books.


His work has been exhibited both in the UK and abroad. He was an

early overall winner of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the

Year competition and in September 2000, Arnold was judged overall

winner of the BBC Countryfile Photographer of the Year competition with

a close-up photograph of a bumblebee in free flight. Having taken

early retirement, Arnold Wilson now spends some of his leisure time

photographing people and places, but his overriding interest is still

nature photography.
