Wildebeest on Fire | Nature Photos | Wildlife Art
Wildebeest walk through early morning Sun Rays kicking up dust along the edge of Etosha pan. One would expect to see any kind of life living in such an inhospitable place. But with the life saving springs along the edge,.Wildlife not only exists but flourishes.
Wildebeest Trek | Wildlife Art
In the Kalahari, the rains have not arrived. Animals rely on man made waterholes, but food is in short supply and require long foraging journeys into the dunes.
These wildebeest, having quenched their thirst, make the long trek to the dunes in search of food. With heads lowered as they move across a dry river bed their laboured walking kicks up dust that fills the air around them. The sun rays filter through the dust creating an ethereal glow.

Award wining Photo of White Back Vulture covered in dust
"Skirmishes start breaking out once again amongst the White-backed scavengers. It is difficult to photograph as the fighting vultures kick up so much dust. They are totally engulfed. Now and again I can see a head, a wing, a claw, as feathers and dirt fly in all directions. I click away with more hope more than certainty. When the dust settles the carcass is bare. Some vultures fly to nearby trees but their takeoff is laboured due to full crops. Those who have over indulged and are too heavy to fly simply walk to the shade of the nearest tree"

Mountain Gorilla stares down at slightly nervous photographer lying at her feet
It is a great privilege to be in the presence of such magnificent primates. It is a shame on humanity that the Mountain Gorilla are on the brink of extinction. They are under constant threat from war, habitat loss and disease.
Getting within such close proximity is a memory I will always cherish.

Lone Wildebeest stands alone at the edge of Etosha pan waiting for the arrival of rains. Once the rain arrive the pan will become a sea of grass which will attract large herds of grazers including Wildebeest. This will give this male Wildebeest a chance to challenge to take over a herd.
