"Spot the Leopard!"
African Leopard
Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Kalahari Desert, South Africa

Can you "spot" the spotted one?
It's amazing how well leopards camouflage anywhere - in bushes, grass or on rocks! Full story behind this photo/sighting on my blog:

"Head-on Rhino"
Black Rhinoceros
Somewhere in Africa...

Our time to be able to see and photograph these black rhinos in the wild is running out. The poaching epidemic that has plagued South Africa since 2010 has now creeped into Namibia which is a stronghold for the critically endangered black rhino.

"Dreams of Elephants"
African Bush Elephant
Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

I just got back from hosting a fabulous +Wild Eye photographic safari to my ultimate destination in Africa: Mana Pools.

My guests and I had some terrific encounters with animals on foot, and the light we got to photograph in was absolutely epic. Trip report to come soon!

This is a panoramic stitch (in Lightroom) of a couple of shots taken one morning with a Nikkor 300mm f2.8 VR lens.

Cheetah Family

I love placing wildlife in their context, showing that they have been photographed in their natural environment as opposed to in captivity. That's the case with this image! Read more about this sighting in my latest post on the +Wild Eye blog:

"Down in the Dust"
African Bush Elephants
Kruger National Park, South Africa

A breeding herd of elephants descend into the Mphongolo riverbed in far northern Kruger National Park at sunset, dusting themselves as they go. This was one of many special moments on our family camping safari last week.

"Edge of Existence"
Lioness
Etosha Pan, Etosha National Park, Namibia

A lioness carefully stalks a gemsbok (oryx) on the edge of Etosha pan as the first rains of summer roll across the vastness of the pan. She was bleeding on her thigh from her previous attempt to subdue the dangerous antelope, and now was being a little more cautious. At times we could not even spot her when skulking in the grass!

"Zebras at Dawn"
Plains Zebras
Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

I can't get enough of the light and the experience of photographing iconic animals on foot that Mana Pools brings.

The +Wild Eye Mana Pools safaris for 2016 have proven very popular. There are literally only a couple of spots available to join me there in July. If you are interested in experiencing this unique and timeless safari destination with a group of like-minded photographers, while being coached and assisted by me in improving your photography, then you can see more info about booking your spot here: http://bit.ly/WildEyeManaPools

"She Hides in Shadow"
Leopard
Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa

I love how leopards only allow you to see them on their terms. If they don't feel like it, you won't have any clue that they are just behind the next bush.

This is from a recent quick trip to the Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve in South Africa.

Black Rhinoceros
Somewhere in Africa...

Our time to be able to see and photograph these black rhinos in the wild is running out. The poaching epidemic that has plagued South Africa since 2010 has now creeped into Namibia which is a stronghold for the critically endangered black rhino.

"Lonely Karoo Tree" - AFRICAN TUESDAY
Mountain Zebra National Park, South Africa

I love photographing the Milky Way, and even more so when I'm in places with close to zero light pollution (like in the Karoo desert, where this image was taken).

Make sure you also post your photos taken in Africa for the #AfricanTuesday theme! Use #AFRICANature as well for dialy African nature photos.

"Ethereal Impala"
Impala
Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

So often we as wildlife photographers get caught up in the search for specific species or blistering action, that we forget to focus on the more transcendent qualities of what makes for a good photo - such as pristine light and ethereal beauty.

This scene was captured in the magical woodlands of Mana Pools in Zimbabwe. I am hosting another +Wild Eye photographic safari there from 19-24 July. If you want to join me, get in touch! More details here: http://bit.ly/WildEyeManaPools

Patience is a virtue for a wildlife photographer - read about how this photo took me 7 years to take on my blog!

This leopard photo was 7 years in the making...
No jokes.
Read the whole story on my blog!

7 years and 9 safaris to the Kalahari to obtain my first Kalahari leopard photo...

I view this photo as somewhat metaphoric and prophetic, given what's happening to elephants in Africa...

"Into the Storm"
African Bush Elephants
Mara Triangle, Maasai Mara, Kenya

There are many unwritten/unspoken photographic "rules" to be found at your local photography club meeting or on most online forums for photographic presentation. One of them is to make sure you capture the subject's face - in wildlife photography this is called "avoiding the bum shot".

In this case - the bum shot is what makes it. Elephants globally are marching into a storm - poaching and demand for ivory has reached critical levels...we cannot be assured that our kids will be able to see living elephants at the rate things are going now...something needs to change. That's what I love about the power of wildlife photography - it can be metaphoric and prophetic in what it evokes in the viewer.

This photo is part of my limited edition print series called "Atmospheric Elephants"...more info here:
