Carl attended our inaugural trip to photograph the Reptiles & Amphibians of Bulgaria earlier this year & came back with some stunning shots.

Although frogs & snakes were the target species on this tour, there were opportunities to photograph mammals & wildflowers as well. Carl captured this super-cute image of a hedgehog during one of the night photography sessions.

There is no need for big lenses on this trip. A macro lens such as the Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro USM is perfect & a tripod would also be useful. A wide-angle lens would also come in handy if you fancied capturing some landscapes or getting creative with your wildlife shots.

You will spend time looking for newts & frogs such as the Danube Crested Newt on the shores of the Danube River before heading into the Vitosha Mountain to capture images of high mountain species such as Slow Worm & Alpine Newt.

Our tour is designed to help you capture images of common species as well as rare species & species with a limited distribution such as this Krotschky's Gecko.

Thanks to Carl for allowing us to share some of his beautiful images. See you again in October!

If you would like to photograph these stunning reptiles & amphibians, we still have a few places available on our 2020 trip. You can find the details here.
