The Kudu, Nyala, and Waterbuck are antelope both found in South Africa. They have similarities, especially in the females, but once you know the differentiating features, you can quickly tell them apart. Here are some images to help you learn each species.
Members of a Southern Ground Hornbill family group take on different roles in order to raise chicks. Family members also must cooperate to defend territory or risk young members being kidnapped by rival hornbill groups.
My favorite moments while on safari are not the perfect photos, but the times when we get to be special observers into the lives of wildlife or see something completely unexpected.
I present my favorite images from my Sept 2018 group safaris. This time my theme is Animal Portraits and Action Captures.
Elephants are frequently our photo subjects while on safari. Their size, shape, intelligence, and trunk are just a few things that make them great subjects and very interesting. There are many opportunities for unique, beautiful, and descriptive images of elephants.
We had many wonderful leopard moments over the course of our September safari groups. This evening game drive was especially nice: we tracked a male leopard named Tingana while he went on his early evening rounds
Elephants can be very entertaining and display many personality traits. We were thrilled to spend some time with an elephant family at a mudbath.
Vultures have a specific job to do but to do it right takes specialization. Species of vulture have evolved to specialize in the many jobs needed to process down a carcass. Each vulture species has a different set of tools for different jobs.
South Africa has two species of rhino: the White Rhino which is the largest population and most commonly seen and the Black Rhino which is not as numerous and harder to spot. The two species are distinct and here are a few of the differences most important to photographers.
The lions, cheetahs and leopards – the big cats – get a great deal of attention during safaris. Quietly hunting and living in the bush are smaller species of cats. These less celebrated cats are very interesting to see and watch and have loads of charisma.
