PHOTOGRAPHER Andrew Walmsley spends a lot of time beetling around taking wildlife pictures.

Now some of his stunning images are on show in a special exhibition in Frideswide Square in Oxford.

The photos will remain on show until August 31 as part of Magdalen College’s Festival of the Arts.

Photos in the free exhibition, including some taken by pupils from Oxford schools, showcase wildlife in and around the city.

Mr Walmsley, who does freelance work for the Oxford Mail, specialises in wildlife and conservation photography and aims to inspire empathy with animals.

He said: “Thousands of people walk past every day and will be seeing my pictures and those taken by school pupils too - it’s a great opportunity.

“I hope this inspires more pupils to take up photography.

“I found the beetle in Shotover Country Park, which is five minutes from where I live in Headington.

“I also took a wide-angle shot of some geese and a horse on Port Meadow.”
