The Rainbird

While in Africa I had the chance to photograph some great critters. While I came back with more species of birds then mammals the number of images kept for mammals was far higher.

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. […]
