Exploring Tanzania February/March 2017

Post 3 – Having a leisurely time to photograph animals was a real treat.  Sometimes you can see potential and you just have to wait – like a bird capturing a bug in its beak or a lion sitting on a limb in partial sunlight while you wait for that glow to come around to the eyes.  And sometimes you have to be ready and respond fast – like a flamingo taking off, a hippo opening its mouth, or a zebra taking a dust bath (which only lasts seconds).  Sometimes it’s fun to study and capture expressions and behavior.

Tanzania Photography Safari

This has been an awesome safari so far.  The group is doing well with photography and we have been treated to many rare experiences.  We saw the Big 5 (elephant, rhino, leopard, cape buffalo, lion) by day 2.  We watched and photographed rhinos mating!  Our guide has never even seen this in the 15 years he has guided.  Another rare sighting, the serval, stalked birds for a few minutes right in front of us.  Then there were zebras fighting and lions “dating”. More to come, moving now to the Serengeti.
