I really love your pictures! I love photography and your pictures enspire me so much! May I ask you what a camera you use and how long it took until you got shots like these? — Asked by mygraphoty

Well thanks very much. I currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mlll. I started photography in 2007 on a trip to Tanzania. The photos on tumblr include many taken at that time. My first body was a Canon Rebel xTi followed by a Canon 7D(currently my second body)
Thanks for taking the time to write. Cheers, NJ

My dream is to photograph wild wolves. (This was was in a nature reserve)We have vilified this magnificent animal. After 38 years of protection by the ESA, the ban on hunting was lifted in 2011. 1,500 wolves were slaughtered in the first 18 months. We are short-sighted in our environmental lawmaking. If you want to be amazed at how nature–wolves–and nature-takes care of itself, PLEASE watch and share this.

Third time is the charm! Infant black mantled howler monkey leaping trees. This was his third attempt.

You people are on drugs. There is no horse in this picture. There is no ostrich. Maybe you see God, but that’s between you and her. There are no wild boars or wild pigs, although that is at least in the ballpark. Wolf and moose? I do love Canadians, but…NO.
Back left-elephant. Front and centre, warthog.
I like playing games with you silly people.

Sometimes you have to really look closely to see animals in the bush. Which TWO animals do you see here?

The gorgeous Verreaux’s eagle #owl. One of my all time favourite birds. Pink eyelids-how fashionable is that!?

Thinking about my little pal today on #WorldRhinoDay. 769 rhino deaths in South Africa as of Sept 10. I hope he and his Mom are still safe…

My little buddy Shrek the white rhino. May he stay safe and grow old.

I was so touched today to receive an email from Angela Sheldrick from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.  She responded to my post dedicated to this young rhino named Shida that I met at the incredible Sheldrick’s Elephant orphanage in Nairobi. Angela and her Mother Dame Daphne Sheldrick are heros of mine. You should really visit thier site. They have saved 100’s of baby elephants-a blessing to all of us. It was shared on thier Facebook Page here.
