Another fellow veterinarian on the trip. His endless wit and sense of humor (even though he looks kinda funny he is much smarter than he looks) kept us entertained for hours. We even got him to eat his vegetables one night.
We call this page "nocturnal Africa" since we spent a significant amount of time out in the bush throughout the evening. Its a whole different world at night.... Before we begin lets look as some of our guides par excellence! Simon, guide and budding comedian forgetting to take the lens cap off.

In February of 2013 I took 10 people to Lake Ndutu in the southern Serengeti of Tanzania to photograph the wildlife, particularly the big cats. The Serengeti is a wildlife photographers dream, and will spoil you when you travel to other parts of the world to photograph wildlife. Click here to see my prior page on the Lake Ndutu area in 2011 to get more details why I go back to this specific area of the Serengeti. We are planning another trip there in 2015. I have lots of pictures and stories from prior Africa trips in the Wildlife Photography section of this web
Michigan is a mecca for wildlife, and a wildlife photographer's dream in all seasons. One of the best times to see wildlife in Michigan is in springtime, especially May and early June. The migrating wildlife have returned, the babies are being born, the area is waking up from a long winter, and the leaves are not yet on the trees.

You can find them anywhere in the state, but especially in northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula (UP).
