Evening Stroll

A small herd of elephants, illuminated from behind by the setting sun, pick up speed and kick up a backlit dust as they approach the edge of the Okaukeujo watering hole. Etosha National Park, Namibia.

Spooked

Small herds of zebra drinking quielty by the watering hole are almost invariably spooked by some, occasionally real, but usually imagined threat. I timed this backlit shot to take advantage of the young foal in the foreground and sparkling water drops kicked up in the panic. Nebrowni waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia.

I composed this wide shot of the Ozonjuitji m'Bari waterhole using group autofocus mode to overcome the difficulties of focusing in the heat of the day, when this peregrine falcon flew into frame and, more by luck than judgement, the AF locked onto the bird to create this shot. Etosha National Park, Namibia.
