Confessions, musings and tips from a snap-happy wanderer. 



You laughin’ at me?                         (Spotted hyena, Serengeti, Tanzania)


Don’t shoot until you see the whites of their eyes!


Or the blacks, browns or yellows of their eyes as the case may be! When photographing nature, be patient.  Many animals turn away or even run away as soon as they are disturbed or approached too closely. However, if you are patient and wait quietly, the wildlife often returns, comes closer or even turns to face its audience.


So, settle down, ready your camera, remain quiet and wait for your subject to pose for you to get the most memorable results.
