Des Ong was raised on the edge of a tropical rainforest and when he moved to the UK, he still had a passion for working with tropical animals. Despite a desk job, he found himself writing about tropical coral reproductions with little photographic evidence available. This drew him to start taking the photos himself, and so he enrolled on a local college course. 

The knowledge he gained inspired him to start taking photos of a wide range of different animals and he has since captured some fantastic images of birds of prey and owls. 

Recently Des has been using the new AF-S Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens. "The speed and accuracy of the autofocus is pretty astounding. Whatever the lighting condition, it just snaps into focus. It may be the fastest I have ever used.

There are three qualities that make this lens very special: versatility, sharpness and autofocus. The ultra-fast autofocus will undoubtedly help me achieve a much higher successful hit rate. Nailing wildlife images at high speed has always been a big challenge and this lens makes capturing these difficult, and often unrepeatable moments much easier." Des enthuses.
