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.

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.

Please spread the word and keep Shrek safe.

Adorned Himba. I have very fond memories of visiting with the Himba in nothern Namibia. I am proud that this photo was chosen for a Black History Month art exhibit in 2012.

A gorgeous ankle bracelet on the Himba tribe elder woman. As well as being ornamental, the large bracelets protect the ankles from snake bites when walking in the grasses and rocky areas.

What can I say, I am shamelessly promoting my day in the sun on #CBC Canada Writes. :-)

#worldlionday  For those who have asked how close I get to lions when I photograph them, this photo has not been cropped-he sauntered so close I had to include a tiny bit of the front bumper on the open-sided Land Rover as I was leaning out.  So….I guess the answer is “pretty close.”  For more lion adventures…
