Birds of Kruger

 Bee Eater taking off

 Pied Kingfisher focussing on his task at hand

 Saddle Billed Stork

Tawney Eagles fighting in mid air

This was the first time for me to ever have the opportunity to shoot birds. I can see why photographers get hooked on birds and birders get hooked on photography. I know I can do better next time.  But I can not wait to see what Alex is going to produce for us on the same subject! *waiting with baited breath my love :)

Footprints of Kruger

Is Mr Hippo somewhere here, or somewhere there?

Hyena footprint

Leopard footprints. Mom and baby.

Rhino footprints.

Hippo footprints.

The best time to take shots like these is first thing in the morning after a rainy night before.

Creatures of Kruger

 Mopanie worms
... a delecacy for both man and animals.

 Been there. Done that.

So did man invent the wheel?

Mr. Toktokkie: Knock Knock
Who's there?
Albert who!
Albert you don't know who this is!

 Scorpion eyes seem scarier than the tail :)

Signatures of the wild

Baking in the sun, patiently waiting for the next serving.

 Wild dogs and their beautiful 'tales'

 A lioness finding her way through the traffic in Kruger National Park.

 You go. I follow.

When I say stay away, I hope you understand it.

Giraffe footprints

So close to being human, yet so far away from it.

Together we stand.

Like a model on the ramp, she passes us by.

I would not lie around like this if my feet were this dirty, Mrs Hyena.

We are heading to Kenya to shoot for 1time Holidays

After our successful pitch to 1time Airline for photographing Cape Town as their 1time Holidays destination, we are very excited to be joining them in the launch of their latest addition Mombassa, Kenya.

These were a few of my photographs that I took when we previously visited Kenya in 2006.

We took a walk on the Diani Beach and found the most amazing sceneries along the way.

This was a wonderful experience to interact and photograph the beauty of the Massai people in their traditional and colourful clothing.

Kruger National Park Flowers

Wild Flowers of Kruger National Park simply kept us breathless on a walk in the Biyamiti River Course, during our recent visit to the park. The challenge of every photographer is to capture what they see in their minds eye. This time, we are happy to have achieved that goal with these beautiful flowers.

 The boabab tree flower (above) only flowers for a few days every year.
