Chance favors the prepared mind

This is one of my favorite images from a recent trip to Tanzania. Shots like this don’t “just happen” well… sometimes they do, but more often than not they are anticipated and planned for. In the instance of this image, we had this herd of Zebra feeding before this beautiful African landscape, with a group…

Hunting Coyote

Just back from a week with an awesome group in Yellowstone and the Tetons. We had many great opportunities with Coyote. It seems to me that since the reintroduction of the Wolf the Coyote seem to be much more active during the daylight hours? I believe the Wolves must own the night. Quick tip… If…

Toucan Hot Tub
