The Humor in Wildlife

There is humor in every form of photography, all you have to do is look for it. One of the joys of Wildlife photography is seeing those silly moments that give us a chuckle. This Grey Go Away Bird, which the name itself makes me laugh, was sitting by the side of the road just […]

The most Intrusive Bird

This was one of those species that I really wanted to see just because you see them everywhere. The Oxpeckers area common bird species that harvest insects from the mammals that roam through Africa. This is a Red Billed Oxpecker to be specific and we msotly saw them, although a few Yellow Billed showed up […]

It’s a good day for Ground birds

Well it’s Turkey Day and normally this is when I would post a photo of a turkey and call it good. Well I was thinking about it and that just didn’t seem like enough, especially when I had other ground birds to go with it. This is the Crested Francolin another common ground bird we […]

The Locals

Our first experience when arriving at the game preserve, outside from the drive in from the airport, was a couple of very interesting birds that look more prehistoric then just about any other birds that we saw. The Southern Yellow Billed Hornbill was one of many different Hornbills that exist in the area and is […]

It’s all about the Little Guys

One of the biggest challenges I have with a blog is figuring out how to prioritize which posts go up when. The more you travel the harder it is to get current posts up. Well I was thinking about this and came to the conclusion that I wanted to do more Africa posts seeing as […]

The Elegant Leopard

One of the most beautiful creatures that we saw during the whole trip was the Leopard. It’s so hard to describe how amazing it is to be five feet away from these elegant cats and they just simply don’t care that we were there. We photographed Leopards on fourteen different occasions and saw eight individuals. […]

Some really Cool Waterfowl

It’s been a long time since I worked with critters in the amplitude that I was in Africa. It was a lot of reteaching myself how to shoot. Looking back at my images now that the trip was over I started critiquing myself a little bit more. I’m still quite happy with my results but […]

The Natural Patterns of Africa

One of my favorite things about being a Wildlife Photographer is finding patterns that occur in nature. One of the most obvious examples is one that we all have grown up with since we were kids, the Zebra. When I was a kid I remember the question are they black with white stripes or white […]

Isolating those moments in Africa

Going to Africa I was torn between bringing my 200-400 and my 600f4. I was always told to bring the 200-400 because everyone said it was the perfect range of lens. Once I was there I completely understood why I was told that. It is a great range to use and I used my 70-200 […]
