Dear Steve, I'm writing a textbook of Animal Biology for my students, and found your very nice photos of fish. I'll be very grateful if you allow me to use your image with Polypterus bichir in the textbook.
Please send me a reply on my address:
Thank you very much!
Best wishes,

Hi, Steve.

Just came across your photo galleries. Really impressed. I am planning on taking the family to Shanghai in May. I was told to make sure I go see Impression on West Lake. Love your pictures. They are breath-taking. Thanks!!

P.S. My wife is originally from Singapore so we visit Singapore every 2 years.

Hi Steve...great images!

Dear Steve,

I hope you do not mind me contacting you but I am currently researching various fish species for the ARKive project and whilst searching the internet for media I came across your image of the Combtail (Belontia signata) which I would be interested in including in ARKive if you would like to become involved?

ARKive - - is a unique conservation initiative.

Films, photographs and audio recordings of the world’s animals, plants and fungi are being gathered into one centralised digital library. To date we have created digital multi-media profiles for some 10,000 species, digitising and storing more than 60,000 still images and over 100 hours of moving footage. These important audio-visual records are being preserved and maintained for the benefit of future generations and are being made available via the ARKive website.

I am able to send some more detailed documentation that will tell you a lot more about the ARKive project should you provide an email address. However, in summary:

· It is ARKive's current aim to compile audio-visual records for the 17,000-plus species currently threatened with extinction, according to the World Conservation Union's (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species.

· We are looking for media (moving footage, still images, audio) to depict each species' life history as comprehensively as possible. In order for us to achieve this aim we need help from as wide a variety of donors as possible and would like to be able to add you to our list of contributors.

· The ARKive website acts as a showcase for image providers, displaying copyright and contact details with every image and links to each media donor's own web activities.

See examples of species which have been ARKived at

Please let me know if you would like to contribute to ARKive or if you have any queries.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Kind regards,

Claire Lewis


"Over the past few decades a vast treasury of wildlife images has been steadily accumulating, yet no one has known its full extent - or its gaps - and no one has had a comprehensive way of gaining access to it. ARKive will put that right. It will become an invaluable tool for all concerned with the well-being of the natural world.”

Sir David Attenborough

"ARKive is a noble project, one of the most valuable in all of biology and conservation practice. It has whatever support I am able to give it."

Professor E. O. Wilson, Harvard University

i have sony t-30 - but how can i make ir photos with it?
i see you can do. please tell me how should i do?
Steve04-Jun-2006 20:31
Hi Karin,
Thanks for viewing my pics. I did not modify my E-300 at all. IR photography with DSLRs usually requires that custom white balance be performed with the IR filter on the lens. But the One-Touch white balance feature of Olympus DSLRs don't work with an IR filter. So the best we could do is to set the WB to a color temperature of 2000K and use that as the custom white balance. Shoot in manual mode and change the exposure by trial and error until you get a good exposure. Give it a try. If you need any further assistance, let me know. Cheers
Karin 03-Jun-2006 16:10
Hi Steve, I'm very interested in infrared photography. I am also using the Olympus E-300. I have purchased the IR filter, but have yet to be able to get it to work. Did you have to change anything on the camera? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I love you pics, hope mine turn out as well.

Your Pine Grove pictures using infra-red is spectacular. They make the estate look like something out of a European winter.

Thank you for viewing. Glad that you like them. They are all 'my precious' babies and I love them all equally. Missy is one sad kitty. She was abandoned by her previous owner and I adopted her when I came across her looking for food near my place.

Where did you find the petenia splendida (red)???

Are you sure that is what it is?

Any idea how common it is to find these in that color?
How about size and breeding?

Yes, I am amazed by it!
