Dance in the Sky

The world of conservation is complex and murky, often dealing with the darker and less salubrious side of human nature. As a consequence, I often ask myself why I do it. Why do we all spend so much of our lives taking risks in order to try and effect change for the environment? It is not an easy question to answer, although I believe one reason lies in the preservation of natural beauty. I take photographs often to escape, to see the world from a different perspective and, of course, to promote what we do, and what we are trying to protect. Time and time again, I see beauty through my lens, and this simple image is an avian example of that, as two terns dance in the sky. Natural beauty, in all its forms, is worth all the effort.
