Steve Irwin's Son Robert Is An Incredible Wildlife Photographer

Despite his sudden death over a decade ago, Steve Irwin has remained a pop culture favorite when it comes to the natural world. Since his death aged just 44, Irwin's family have continued their work with animals. His son Robert, who bears a striking resemblance to his dad, seems to have a particular gift for documenting them on film. 

Now the thirteen-year-old has taken to sharing his animal snaps via Instagram and some of the shots are awe-inspiring. From reptiles and insects to big cats and whales, you can see just how knowledgeable Robert is. Something which must run in the family. 

Already Robert's work has been shortlisted for Australian Geographic's Nature Photographer of the Year, below are a handful of our favourite shots.
