Going Through So Many Photographs

 I got home on Saturday night after some 30 hours and four planes in transit from Amboseli National Park in Kenya to Nairobi to Frankfurt to Toronto to Philadelphia.  Shewwww.  Tom and daughter Jessica were at the airport to pick me up and carry me home.  And now the process of going through all the pictures begins.  Here are a few more of my favorites so far.

The Elephants of Amboseli

 We are here in Amboseli National Park in Kenya.  Yesterday we had the opportunity to photograph the magnificent elephants.  I am actually laying on the ground in the dusty dried mud with a wide angle lens to get this photograph.  They were walking almost right over my head.  A little scary, but so much fun!!

Leopard Saga - Second Day in Kenya

We found this beautiful baby leopard in a tree on our second day in the Mara.  Soon afterwards the leopard's mom called and he climbed down the tree and joined her, but there were hyena around and the leopards were both quite worried and skittish.  So the baby disappeared again and the mom climbed another tree where she had earlier brought up an impala that she had killed. We went back to the tree today and the mom is still up there. The baby is still in hiding and the hyenas were lurking everywhere. Hopefully Mom and Babe will soon be reunited.

Ears and Paws in Kenya

I am here in Kenya for about two weeks.  On our first day here we found the most wonderful pride of lions - 11 cubs - 4 females and 2 males.  The first picture below is one of the cubs.  More to follow!!
