Steve Jones is a Cornish­man from Redruth. He has been fas­cin­ated by insects, par­tic­u­larly dragon­flies, since child­hood. In 1983 he became one of the first mem­bers of the fledgling Brit­ish Dragon­fly Soci­ety, and for over 20 years has been the county recorder for dragon­flies. He is an act­ive mem­ber of the Corn­wall Wild­life Trust Pho­to­graphic Group, and his illus­tra­tions and pho­to­graphs have appeared in many magazines, includ­ing Brit­ish Wild­life and Corn­wall Today, as well as a num­ber of county dragon­fly guides, and spe­cial­ist journ­als such as Stud­ies on Iberian Dragon­flies. He is an accom­plished pho­to­grapher in this spe­cial­ist field, and was short­l­is­ted by Out­door Pho­to­graphy for the pres­ti­gi­ous Out­door Pho­to­grapher of the Year 2010 award, in the Small World (macro) sec­tion. The photo was of a male Red Veined Darter, which appears in his book  Insects of Corn­wall and the Isles of Scilly, pub­lished in our Pocket Corn­wall series.
