This is an area that I would like, in time, to explore more. For the time being, here are a few images that I like, mainly from one Kruger Park trip in December 2012; but hopefully "watch this space" in the future...
The panicky behaviour of a herd of zebra at a waterhole lent itself to some creative framing. This image is my favourite from that sequence.
Spending time at a waterhole with a herd of zebra allows time to look for alternative images.
Amid the chaos of a herd of resting buffalo, I was looking for this image of one isolated from the rest
I enjoyed the sea of buffalo horns, and waited for this moment of eye contact
I liked the look of this purple roller as he/she fluffed off the raindrops
The graphic nature of this image really appealed to me, so I desaturated the background, and muted the colours of the bird for effect
These two boys were getting rather friendly, it seemed; here whispering who knows what?
I loved the style of this guy as well as the graphic image provided against a cloudy sky
Spending time with the troop on the mountain above Glencairn, this fleeting moment was gone in an instant.
This is an HDR blend of 3 exposures - very tricky with a moving target, but it captured the moment.
Caught in the midst of a herd of grazing ellies, I took time out to look for something different.
This one took me by surprise, and I had to rotate the camera mid-yawn to keep in frame.
Driving past Addo, there was a herd close to the fence that allowed for foot-level and exciting close-range images.
These two were having fun for quite a while, then suddenly left. Studying the pics later I could see that one had broken a tusk during their tussles!
A fun composition of wrinkles and tail and texture
Or is it a yawn? This guy started a huge yawn but got distracted half-way by the camera shutter in rapid-fire mode...
During a guided walk we were fortunate to be led to this elephant carcass - the result of a fatal fight.
A fleeting moment in the morning light at Storms river mouth.
This beauty was difficult to photograph as all it wanted was to burrow into the depths of the king protea.
Reducing this down to monochrome enhances the simplicity and appeal of this composition.
This very photogenic guy was photographed at butterfly world.
I found a number of empty cicada skins clutching grass blades, and enjoyed the effect of the backlit sunlight (HDR)
