Close Encounters

Animals and Me

Most of the time I am keeping a respectful distance to most animals, normally behind a camera.

This is a collage of a few occasions when I changed sides. In front of the camera I had quite close contacts with various species, some at the Nashville Zoo, some at Thanda Private Game Reserve, some at Khamai Reptile Centre and some at Pakamisa Private Game Reserve.

I love these close encounters 🙂
