Running hippo in Botswana

Every time we would see hippos they would immediately run into the water.  I caught this one just before it went under.jabathehut

Lilac-breasted roller, Botswana

The lilac-breasted roller is one of the most beautiful birds you will see in Africa.  It is quite small and very quick.  You will see many of them, but trying to catch them in flight can be difficult.  They are most spectacular while flying especially then the sun is out.roller1 roller2

Cheetah cubs, Botswana

A few hours earlier we had sighted a mother cheetah and her three cubs.  We caught up with them again right after she killed an impala.  She was still breathing heavy, but her cubs were busy having their meal.

Lions in action

The best wildlife photos are not static.   Tell a story.  Sometimes it’s not that easy but patience has it’s virtue as the say.  We were watching these lions for 30 minutes.  They were just laying around not doing anything.  Finally they decided to do something.  Here is the result.at play

Yellow billed hornbill, Botswana

If the sun is in the wrong place you just do what you can to make it work.  A plus .5 exposure compensation and then brought out the shadows in Lightroom CC.  The fun part is the glowing bill from the backlight.yellow billed hornbill

Close up texture

the Elephant is back-lit he is walking toward you.  What do you do?  Get in close to pick up the texture of his skin and the mud that is caked on him from the nearby waterhole.texture

African Spotted Hyena

the spotted hyena is a disgusting critter.  This one is covered in blood from feeding on a Rhino.  She came down to the water hole to wash off a bit.  We could smell her from 30 yards away when the wind shifted.  Can’t even describe what she smelled like, but let’s say that skunk would have been better.spotted hyena

A Giraffe around the corner

One of the coolest things about being on a Safari drive is that you can be driving for a half hour just looking around and then come around the corner and there are critters right in your face.  These Giraffe were just right there as we came around the bend in the trail.giraffe

Let’s Fly

While on Safari I really wanted to get an Impala in mid air.  Last day driving back to camp a group of Impala decide to jump across the road right in front of us.  Camera comes up, driver stops the vehicle and I start shooting.  let's fly
