On today’s game drive I not only used my cameras but I also got a great shots from my drone. Combined with the noise from my vehicle the herd of Cape Buffalo ignored the flying machine 😊 I got some great footage not only of the Buffalo but of a female Cheetah on a kill and of young Elephant bulls sparring.
Stay home and stay safe 😊
Resident Wildlife Photographer and Specialist Photography Guide at Thanda Safari
A lot of my friends around the world are quite envious about my lock down location. Being grounded on a beautiful 14,000ha big five game reserve is not the worst fait for a professional wildlife photographer.
To share a bit of my luck I will continue to post pictures taken on game drives on Thanda during this crisis. I hope they will brighten up your stay-at-home days a little.
Theses medium-sized antelopes are found in eastern and southern Africa.
One of the reasons why they usually look so immaculate is because they have a special dental arrangement on the front lower jaw similar to the tooth-comb. This is used for what is called allogrooming. Individuals are ‘combing’ one another’s fur on the head and the neck to remove parasites.
I love photographing large felines. Seven of my EYES Series Cats Pictures are now on display at Thanda Safari’s Tented Camp. The images look fabulous being printed on very large high quality canvases (the largest are 1.6m x 1.3m).
