The last rays of evening sun penerating the dust cloud stirred up by this mating pair of buffalo’s (Syncerus caffer) reproductive exersions provides the perfect backdrop for a bizarre sense of aftergolow.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings. Please visit us at
