Bull Elephant - Kruger National Park
I muse as to whether elephants think we can't see them when they watch you from behind flimsy branches.
The only thing better than one Lilac Breasted Roller is getting two together. Of the over 400 varieties of birds to be photographed in East Africa the Lilac Breatsed Roller is my favourite.
This opportunity arose in Tsavo West one of the oldest National Parks in Kenya. Its fallen in popularity for the average tourist as MUCH OF the TERRAIN is rugged and spotting game can be difficult. However the lack of people and the nature of the terrain rewards the avid PHOTOGRAPHER.
The light and angles due to the hilly nature can give OPPORTUNITIES to ACHIEVE photos not possible on other more accessible National Parks
Mana Pools Zimbabwe , there are just a few places you get to see in the world that feel like a spiritual home, for me Mana Pools is just one of those places , a place that photographic magic happens.
The light is unique and you get go photograph the animals in a setting that is incredibly beautiful.
Hyenas are highly social and this mum is sitting at the entrance to her den protecting her very young pups.
Hyenas make great mums and are always entertaining to watch. A bit later in the day saw this pack steal a lioness wildebeest kill, they love doing this and will often steal the kill of leopards as well but are more than capable of making their own kill
We have moved on from Amboseli to explore the rugged wild and incredibly beautiful Tsavo West National Park. Its combination of rich red soils, black lava flows and rugged hills bisected by valleys teaming with wildlife allow me the opportunity to combine my two favorite photographic genres wildlife and landscape.
