Olympus E520, Olympus 100-400

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

    beautiful capture dan .. i’m sure nature magazines would be keen to receive submissions from you … but then i’d understand if you were purely content to “just” do the safari photo records and traipse around in paradise ..

  • Thanks Carol! LOL….shucks, you wouldn’t want to load too much work on my plate at one time now would you??
