If you hadn't have guessed by all the pretty herpetological photos everywhere, I am quite the avid photographer! My current camera setup is a Pentax K-50 body with 18-55 mm and 55-300 mm lenses although I shall be buying a macro lens soon! The camera is completely weather sealed and has seen some rather wet times at my side, especially when visiting Sabah.

My previous camera was a Sony α-200 which was a great introduction to DSLR cameras, I was sad to see the camera go but it was time for a change. It was a great entry-level camera and taught me quite a bit about DSLR photography which Below are some photos I've taken from both cameras which make up my Flickr and Instagram feeds that are linked below.

Common Frog Megalosaurus

Let the measuring begin! Now that we have some nice warm and wet weather, I’ll be working with a group of colleagues to investigate the foraging behaviour of smooth newts (Lissotriton vulgaris). #amphibians #amphibiousaf #amphibiansofinstagram #newts #newtsofinstagram #MySci #science #research #fieldwork #herpetology #scientistsofinstagram
