Hi and welcome to my Wildlife Photography Blog.

Photographing from the Zambezi River, Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia

Here’s where I regularly post wildlife images, mostly taken on trips to the African bush.

Please feel free to browse through the Categories (right column), or you can go straight to the most recent posts.

The majority of the pictures were taken in the wild, in the animals’ natural habitat — sometimes in the great national parks of Africa, and at others in smaller, more humble nature reserves.

I usually include basic photography information like the camera and lens used, together with the camera settings, plus snippets of information about the animal or why I chose those specific camera settings.

Please bear in mind that comments and questions are always welcome, as are clicks on the “Like” and “+1” buttons.

The horizontal menu along the top of the page will take you to relevant pages on my main site, Wildlife Pictures Online.

Thanks for visiting.
