Chimpanzees How to photograph an animal with so much personality. Study them closely as you photograph, they have human like expressions – you want to caption each one with what you think they are thinking. Easy because we share so much DNA. Use your non-verbal interaction skills to develop a relationship, then capture the moment.

Close views show interesting textures and features of this odd looking creature. Can you tell the difference between a black rhino and a white rhino? It’s not about the color.
Black rhinos have a pointed lip suitable for grabbing fruit and leaves off trees and shrubs. White rhinos have a flat, wide lip for grazing on grasses. The white rhino is larger. Learn more about rhinos on our Kenya Photography Safari.
