As a teenager I sat down to write down a list of 100 species around that planet that I really wanted to see before I drifted off to the Great National Park in the sky. It was not a very difficult thing to do as being at boarding school at the time, I could spend hours researching the list (I even had all the latin names) in the library.
Five years ago I thought I would summarise it into a Top 20 list that I wanted to photograph as well, and although I have photographed a few, I still have quite a few of these beauties to find, and that excites me.
Polar bear (done)
Bengal Tiger (done)
Hoolock Gibbon (done)
Giant River otter
Blue Whale (done)
Any Bird of Paradise.
Gaur – Indian bison (done)
I do realise that there is a serious lack of bird species on the list but I find that if I chase mammal species in certain parts of the world, I tend to photograph the birds anyway.
What species are on your list ?
