17 JULY 2020 | LION & SOUTHERN ORYX
One of the most remarkable moments and favorite photos from my last decade of guiding. Arriving at Salvadora waterhole, in Namibia's Etosha NP, something felt strange. After a few minutes of wating, a lion's head appeared, then disappeared in an impossibly tiny clump of grass next to the waterhold. After another 30 minutes of waiting, a young Southern Oryx walked into the trap. It took a bit of a chase, but the lion eventually took down the oryx, and immediately afterwards, another EIGHT lions appeared from the surrounding landscape, and quickly devoured the hapless antelope. This photo shows the chase, which seemed like it lasted for hours, but in reality was only a few seconds.
10 JULY 2020 | FLAMECREST
The pandemic has given me much more time than I would normally have. I have poured some of it into creating this website!
A year ago, I was just returning home from a wonderful short trip to Taiwan. Saw all the endemic birds and photographed most of them, including this Flamecrest. Has to be the best member of the "Kinglet" family.
