Wildlife Photography in Summertime: It is not so difficult to photograph the wildlife in its natural habitat. You can make your photos stand out in the wild by making the photograph realistic and as natural as possible. These tips will help you make your photographs more realistic and make them even more popular with wildlife watchers.

Lighting is key. You need to use the light from the sun at different times of the day, for different animals and their behavior. You will need to take pictures of the same animals over a period of time, using different light conditions.

With summer just around the corner for those in the northern hemisphere, I thought that we should take a look back at some of our previous articles to give you some photographic inspiration this season. With lots of us having some free time over the next few months and the sun (hopefully) making an appearance, this is the perfect opportunity to get out with your camera.


  1. Butterflies

It is very beautiful to see butterflies flying from tree to tree during summer. There are different types of butterflies and their colors are different.

You’ve probably already seen them emerging, but butterflies make for great photographic subjects at this time of year. There are so many different species, with a huge variety between different countries.

You’ll need to practice your macro technique, as well as your butterfly stalking efforts. They can be very easy to disturb so photography can be challenging, but a good macro image often makes a person say ‘wow’.


  1. Foxes & Badgers

In the rural environment, foxes are seen coming out to eat paddy during winter. You can see them behind the paddy field. Foxes are very clever animals. You will hear the call of jackals at night in the village. You can capture beautiful photos of foxes in daylight.

In summer, foxes and other burrowing mammals are appearing with their young. Fox cubs can be seen playing in fields and it’s possible to capture interactions between siblings, such as play fighting and other behaviors. Foxes are a great subject and accessible for many people due to the fact they live in both rural and urban environments. You may be lucky enough to have them in your garden, but if not then keep your eyes peeled whilst driving around rural areas and you may just spot some resting in the sun outside the den entrance.

A little more challenging, badgers and their young can be seen in the evenings as the nights grow shorter.


  1. Puffins

Puffins are any of three species of small alcids auks in the bird genius. These are pelagic seabirds that feed primarily by diving in the water. They breed in large colonies on coastal cliffs offshore islands, nesting in crevices among rocks or in burrows in the soil. Two species, the tufted puffin and horned puffin, are found in the North Pacific Ocean, while the Atlantic puffin is found in the North Atlantic Ocean. 

All puffin species have predominantly black or black and white plumage, a stocky build, and large beaks that get brightly colored during the breeding season. They shed the colorful outer parts of their bills after the breeding season, leaving a smaller and duller beak. Their short wings are adapted for swimming with a flying technique underwater. In the air, they beat their wings rapidly up to 400 times per minute in swift flight, often flying low



We couldn’t do a wildlife photography countdown for summer without mentioning this popular seabird. I wouldn’t be surprised if puffins weren’t the most photographed animal in the UK at this time of year. The Farne Islands is just one of a number of places you can see what is nicknamed the ‘sea clown’, due to its brightly coloured beak.

There are plenty of other seabirds on offer too. Gannets, guillemots, razorbills, shags… the list goes on. In fact, if you’ve never spent time photographing seabirds in the summer before, then make this the year you do it. It’s fantastic, endless fun and you’ll come away with some fantastic images.
