Top UK Photography Hotspots

The British countryside, whilst not as exotic as the African plains or tropical rainforests of South America, there are still plenty of opportunities for wildlife photographers of all abilities to hone their skills and capture some beautiful shots of British wildlife in their natural environments.

At photoGuard weíve rounded up a list of our 15 favourite places from across the country, so you can find a location whether near or far to photograph some of the most interesting wild animals in the UK.

If you decide to take your camera and go explore one of the below locations, donít forget to share your shots with us on Facebook at @photoGuardInsurance, as weíd love to see what pictures you manage to capture of the Great British wildlife.

But remember, some of the best shots of wildlife are taken from observing and waiting for the wildlife to approach you, so donít beat yourself up if you donít manage to get that perfect shot first time round.
