Wildesbeests in the mist

I’ve  been into the Ngorongoro crater quite a few times, most mornings there’s normally a mist. However on this morning it stayed for longer than usual. Normally it was gone by the time we got to the crater floor.

Thorny Meal

I’ve never quite figured out why elephants enjoy eating Acacia so much, they have to be the sharpest natural occurring thing I have come across. They have gone straight through the bottom of my jandals on hundreds of occasions, horrible things!!

Wild Beasts

I was originally going to share this photo yesterday, but changed my mind while I was writing the blog post. I figured a photo of a creature that is more menacing would be more appropriate for what I was trying to say yesterday. Though a cheetah is probably less dangerous to a human than a herd of wildebeest. It’s a fairly natural instinct to make the assumption that any predatory animal is dangerous to humans, especially one that hunts other mammals. What I have experienced is a completely different thing, I have never felt threatened by predators, though I must admit that most of the time I have been in a vehicle when these animals are close. Except when diving on the sardine run, then I was surrounded by hundreds of sharks.

These types of feelings are why my photo library is full of wildlife pictures, while I enjoy photographing cities and landscapes, there is something inside of me that feels truly at peace when I am photographing and watching wild animals.

Ngorongoro Kites

Ngorongoro is still one of the most unique places I’ve ever been to. It’s full of wildlife everywhere you look and it’s very used to humans. I wonder if the whole if Africa used to have wildlife like this.
