Sunset On The Zambezi River

We took a boat for a sunset cruise up and down the Zambezi river yesterday. To say it was memorable would be an understatement. Many different kinds of birds, hippos, crocodiles, water buffalo; you name it and it was there.  The light when I took this shot was right out of the African Queen movie!

Sparrow CPR

This little bird had just crashed into a glass door. As the stunned (and maybe dying) feathered creature lay on the sidewalk, a nice man took out his handkerchief and tried giving it CPR…..Little acts of kindness make my day!

The Icarus Bird

It’s pretty unusual to be street shooting with a little camera like the Ricoh GR and come away with a picture like this.

The Long And The Short Of It

Small Scale House Cleaning

We’ve been doing a lot of birding while we have been in Florida. My wife Sarah loves to look for new species. So it’s always fun to catch a glimpse of them doing things one doesn’t usually see.
