The eye of a huge bull Elephant. Taken at the Kruger National Park. After closely looking at some of the shots of this elephant, I was able to see close up what it’s eye really looks like. The eye seemed to have multiple rings and colours inside.
A tiny little Warthog piglet. There were piglets with their mother munching on the wet grass after a heavy rain. They didn’t mind the car being so close to them, but shot off as soon as they heard the sound of my camera taking the picture. Photographed at The Kruger National Park.
A small baby Zebra foal. The Redbilled Oxpecker sitting on its leg, kept jumping on and off the zebra, trying to find a good spot to sit. The zebra wasn’t bothered at all with the bird. Photographed at Kruger National Park.
A Portrait of a Housefly. After I caught it and put it on some paper, it just stayed there for about 20 minutes cleaning itself. Shows that flies aren’t really that dirty because they spend so much time cleaning themselves!
The side view of a Painted Reed Frog. It was sleeping on the tip of a reed on the bank of a dam. I had to give him a little nudge to wake him up so that I could get it’s interesting eye patterns in the shot.
I took this photo of a Green Veined White butterfly during the population explosion in South Africa. Everyday there were thousands and thousands of them passing past my house. It wasn’t too difficult capturing one as my subject!
Not sure what kind of Jumping spider this is. I had so much fun photographing this spider! I’ve noticed Jumping spiders look right into your eyes or lens when you’re close to them. It’s always very humbling photographing jumping spiders. I was sad to set him free when I was done with him.
