Early morning bath
These small group of elephants where taking there bath early morning in the Boteti river
The combination of the water on their body's and the early sunray's made it a special image with a clear vieuw of rimples and water on their bodies.
Relying on mom
judging from her utterly relaxed face, mom has done it all her life. so the little one is perfectly safe and can learn without fear – the best way to learn for life!

Target in sight
The island Langkawi is part of Malaysia and is situated in the Andaman Sea.
A friend of mine told me that the white sea eagle as well as the Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus), also known as the Red-backed Sea-eagle, are frequently seen on the mangrove forest bordering the Andaman sea.
I decided to rent a boat and took both my 600 mm and 300 mm lenses, hoping to make some good shots of these magnificent birds. Soon, I discovered that, in a small fisherman boat, the use of my 600 mm lens was unpractical and I had to shoot with the 300 mm.
When Brahminy kites dive down to catch fish, they are making unexpected movements.
It’s practically impossible to follow the unpredictable turns of these birds.
Determined to succeed in getting some satisfying images, it took me 4 days with an average duration of 5 hours per day of focused shooting.
The concentration needed to make this type of images is not evident !
It helps the little rascals find out how to work those ingenious muscular gadgets, called "trunks", they were born with! a beautiful wildlife capture, as always, and the fact that their behavior is so "universally young", so playful, and thus so familiar to us, makes it especially likable and touching!

Beware , my eyes don't lie
Cougar, mountain lion,or puma....the choice is yours ; rarely found or seen in Corcovado N.P
Rhino in red
On our way back to the lodge, ....3 rhino's were grazing nearby the waterhole descending to quench their thirst . A troop of quelia's flew up and completed the image. A spectacular lightning display came as a bonus ! Unforgettable moments.
Sprankles of hope
An anthrax infestation killed hundreds of hippo's, elephants and infected the lion pride at lower Zambezi river bank. This young male just came out the waterhole after feeding on the rotten carcass of a hippo. Several months later when back home, i contacted the ranger of the area, getting the news that the lion pride survived and the disease didn't spread out.
Lower Zambezi, Zambia
Gelada babboons are solely found on the highlands and often in rather big numbers. I organized a photoshoot with a stay of 3 days amongst these amazing peaceful and calm creatures.
I enjoyed every moment of this stay.
