Southern Sea Lions of the Falkland Islands

2020-02-13T07:54:10-08:00February 12th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

The Southern Sea Lions in the Falklands are huge. When you look at the adult males you can see what looks like a mane on their huge heads, which is why they are called lions. Jerome Poncet from Golden Fleece Expeditions, our sailboat captain, made a stop at Stinker Island where these sea lions congregate, before taking us to New Island. We had a chance to go on land in a zodiac and approach them from a close distance. We approached Stinker Island from Jerome's 65 foot sailboat As we neared the island the welcoming committee came out to greet

Photographer’s Africa

2020-02-13T08:13:12-08:00February 12th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

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

Rwanda 2011

2020-02-13T07:40:16-08:00February 12th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

The mountain gorillas in Rwanda are a success story. Their numbers are increasing (720 in the world, 480 are in Rwanda), poaching has diminished, and the local people are reaping the benefits of tourism. There are 16 groups in Rwanda- eight are for tourists to view, 8 are off limits to tourists and are used to study their behavior. When it comes to primates its all about the eyes, especially for an animal that is closely related to us. We found his silverback (he is at least 12 years old to attain this status) on the first day of our

Rwanda-Tanzania 2011

2020-02-13T07:47:17-08:00February 12th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

In February we went to the southern Serengeti to watch the wildebeests calve. It is quite a spectacle, especially when tens of thousands of female wildebeest calve within a two-week period of time. We decided to stop off and visit the gorillas in Rwanda on the way to the Serengeti, and ended our trip with the Hadzabe (Hadza) in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. These fascinating people were on the cover of National Geographic last year. It was such a good trip that I would like to repeat it in the near future. This page has links to 3 aspects of
