I am posting this photo of a 4 month old white rhino in South Africa, who I call Little Shrek, as a tribute to the 4 rhinos massacred in Kenya this week. It is deeply, deeply upsetting to hear about these killings, the worst rhino poaching episode in 25 years. I fear we will lose these incredible creatures. They just cannot reproduce at the rate of human greed.

Bald eagles are magnificent! This was taken on a little break from shooting grizzlies. (top right!) For more eagle action, check out two baldies fighting over salmon in Bald Eagle Salmon Strut.

I just finished this digital f/x of one of my elephant photos.(Click to enlarge) It is being printed on canvas… I was trying to achieve a light painterly effect to highlight the rich textures of the forehead. Yes?

I was very happy when this little dude fell in the truck and I was able to get him to safety…once we got away from the pride of lions we were following…

Check out our photo-shoot here.  We were so happy together…

BTW, sign up for Wild! Updates at www.njwight.com and you will hear first- hand about these happy accidents when I am in the bush!
