March 23, 2012
Former sniper Craig camouflaged himself against the green undergrowth, sharpshooter Craig Jones wait for hours until his furtive target appears.Former sniper Craig has traded his rifle for a long lens to become a wildlife photographer and is using all those skills to capture stunning wildlife shots.

Dedicated Craig spent four months hidden in the foliage to snap the amazing natural shots of owls in their habitat across the UK’s marshes.

Craig said: ‘I was in the army from 16 until 23 and became a sniper.But I have swapped my rifle for a long lens now. I use the exact same techniques of a sniper – shape, shine and silhouette – to make sure I go unnoticed by the wildlife.And if you think like the animal you are trying to photograph, then you can trace its moves easily and get those killer shots.’
