A new page featuring hippo pictures has been added.
Most of the photographs were taken
on a recent visit to Zambia where I was able to do some canoe trips on the Zambezi River.
Thanks to the skill and experience of our river guide Roddy Smith of
Lion Roars Safaris, we were able to thread our way safely
through numerous pods of hippo and some quite splendid crocodiles.
But even under such optimum conditions, photographing wildlife from a moving canoe is not as easy as it would seem!
Close proximity to dangerous animals, particularly hippo and crocodiles, does accelerate the adrenaline supply. For
the not-so-brave, like me, I find my enthusiasm for wildlife photography diminishes
rapidly when the potential subjects could, if so inclined, do me serious damage! See pics below.
