Following in his famous father’s footsteps

In 2006, renowned Australian conservationist Steve Irwin, known to many as “The Crocodile Hunter”, was fatally stung by a stingray.
His children are turning out to be wild-life experts in honour of their father’s passion. Daughter Bindi advocates, researches, and educates people about wildlife around the globe through the Australia Zoo.
And when in December 2018, the Natural History Museum in London in the UK, hosted its annual Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition, Irwin’s son, 15-year-old Robert Irwin, garnered attention in the 11-14 years old category.
His subject matter may gross some folks out, but Irwin has inherited his dad’s fearlessness and fascination when it comes to unusual animal events. His photograph shows a frog being consumed by a spider. He calls it “The Catch”.
“I spent a month visiting a remote swamp in northern
Queensland to get this shot of a huntsman spider devouring a
frog and was very excited that it is one of the only times this has
been recorded,” he wrote on Instagram. Like his late father, he
carries his camera with him wherever he goes and his
photography has been honoured on various global platforms.
