Chimpanzee Dreaming | Nature Photos | Wildlife Art

"I think I'm going to get a print of this for my room. Then the chimpanzee and I can dream together " Gaynor Young

Totti is name of this wanna be alpha male chimpanzee (Pan Pan). This male chimp came down from the canopy to the forest floor with one motive. Desire. A young female chimpanzee is above him in the canopy. Totti is doing his best to entice her away from other males. He poses and gestures and calls in every seductive way possible. But alas to no avail. His advances go un noticed. The female chimpanzee ignores him. Totti the wanna be alpha male chimpanzee. Lies back with hands behind his head and dreams of what could have been.

Monochrome Print of Hippos on a cold misty morning

When the wind is howling and temperature drops it can be difficult to tear yourself away from your warm bed. 

On a workshop in the Eastern Cape the students huddled in the 4x4 dreaming of breakfast. When I suggested to get out and lie down flat in the wet mud around the small lake. I wasn't very popular. 

Getting down "eye level" with your subjects can make or break a photograph. The lifting mist creates intrigue and adds another dimension to the photo. 

With hippos always be alert to the warning sighns they give and retreat asap when they do...

Tower of Giraffes Stop and Stare*

This is one my favorite monchrome fine art Giraffe prints. I sometimes struggle composition wise with giraffes. But on this particular day the Giraffes were wonderful models. Each Giraffe seem to have his or her own signature pose. A portrait photographer could not have wished for more. Needless to say I was so thankful. I had the easy job of clicking the shutter.

This is one of my best selling black & white fine art wildlife prints and thats all down to this wonderful giraffe family. Thank you..

Wildebeest trek,  Kalahari sunrise

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.

This image was captured at Mapungubwe reserve on the boundaries Of South Africa ,Botswana and Zimbabwe.

It was late in the afternoon when I came across this Alpha male and his troop. They were heading towards a cliff edge to roost for the night. This male was basking in the glow of the suns last rays. I watched and photographed him for awhile. He was well aware of my presence and was very relaxed.He stared at me as much as I stared at him. Who was studying who?
