A Kelowna photographer has gathered significant attention on Facebook with his animal photos.

“My goal is to demonstrate the beauty of where we live,” he said.

The hobby photographer doesn’t do it for a living, and said the Okanagan Valley is “(living) in nature with a highway going down the middle.”

He said the images are often taken while on his kayak, which allows him to get closer to the animals.
