Feel Good

I’ve had so many knives stuck into me, when they hand me a flower I can’t quite make out what it is. It takes time.

The Godfather: He is big — 4 meters tall and over 4 tons in weight. He is the “Godfather”. I have visualized this scene many times. I have checked and rechecked my equipment and decided upon the camera and lens combination. I now relax and control my breathing as they come in to view. The next ten minutes are a bliss of forgetfulness as I zone in to the task at hand; only one moment stands out. He stands still before me in all his magnificence, raising his trunk filled with the red Kalahari dust. In one fluid movement he sprays his forehead and for one brief moment he is covered in the magic of dust and light.

Acrobatic: This small red eye frog playing at the edge of the leaf looks a bit like it’s making some acrobatic move. It can blend well with the leaves, disguised from predators. Those big red eyes really caught my attention, drawing me to observe and photograph its moves.
