My name is Alex McCarthy and I’m an amateur naturalist and conservationist living in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales. A large proportion of my photographs are taken from my local nature reserve and this region along with its natural history, is a constant inspiration. Working close to home also allows me to gain an intimate knowledge of the area, while also minimising my carbon footprint. Although I love all British wildlife, I have a particular passion for macro photography, predominantly of insects but also fungi. My favorite subjects are butterflies and dragonflies. I’m a member of ‘Butterfly Conservation’, ‘British Dragonfly Society’ and ‘Wildlife Trust for South and West Wales’. When I’m not out with my camera stalking insects I like to volunteer in wildlife conservation projects organised by the Wildlife Trust. I hope that my images will help highlight the beauty and importance of insects and the environment on which we all depend.
