Badgers on Night Watch: Art Print by Robert E Fuller

Author:

As the clocks turn back this weekend, I for one won’t be sorry. I love being out in the dark listening for wildlife in the gloom.

Over the years these wild animals have accepted me as one of their own and I have painted most of their portraits. In fact, I am now so much a part of their everyday lives that the cubs will let me sit amongst them, scrambling over my boots […]

Red stags are truly fabulous beasts. But to get up close to them in the wild you need to be prepared to get down on your hands and knees! This is the story of how I crawled alongside a huge, handsome, stag in order to photograph it for a painting!   Scotland’s Red Stag Rut The red stag rut in the wilds of Scotland, when male ‘stags’ compete for supremacy over the female ‘hinds’, takes […]

This is the extraordinary story of an only barn owl chick whose lonely, chequered, life was recorded on cameras hidden inside her nest. Read on for an owl drama that, looked at from a human perspective, spans love, loss, and even murder! Of course as a barn owl, all this is normal! Live Cameras in my Art Studio  Next to my drawing board sits a bank of TV screens streaming live footage from inside animal […]
