Heads up – Just for fun!

I usually do not manipulate my images except to ‘restore’ them to what I recall as the best representation of what I actually saw. This normally includes the adjustment of color, brightness, contrast, sharpness and some minor cloning and makeup work.

This picture is an exception. It is a merger of four images of a female Giraffe raising her head after she was finished drinking. An interesting study 🙂


One of my favorite shots this year!

This morning three beautiful Kudu bulls came to drink at small waterhole at Thanda. After they had quenched their thirst a herd of Cape Buffalo started stampeding the scene. The Thanda guests enjoyed this excited sighting after a action-filled game drive with a pride of eight Lions interacting with four White Rhinos (meaning: getting chased around by them :-)) while three Giraffe watched the turmoil.
