Africa Wildlife 2008 : Southern Africa provides an unparallel opportunity to slip into the past. Large game reserves let us experience Africa as we think of it – an untamed land populated by exotic animals. Although this is far from the reality of Africa, let me share my pictures with you of a land that soon may be lost. Visit with me the magnificent animals that now roam these game reserves, the last islands of “old Africa”.
The pictures in this section were taken in four game reserves in Botswana and Zambia. Both countries have taken major steps to protect their native wildlife. However an ever increasing population  places a greater demand for the scares revenues of the government and pose a constant threat to the continuation of conservation efforts.

Pictures were taken with a Cannon Rebel xti using a Cannon 100-400mm zoom l type lens or a Cannon EFS 17-85 mm lens.

Galapagos Islands/ Ecuador (Jun 09) : Normally, I try to keep the size of my galleries to 2-3 screens of photos max (45 or less).  After 6 days in the Galapagos, it was clear that was just not going to happen.  Here is a fairly large set of my favorite photos from the trip.  The best ones are on the first page.  After that, they are all shots that I felt "made the cut"... These are 100 of the 1000+ that I took during the trip.  Enjoy.

Yellowstone in Spring 2009 : Our spring trip to Yellowstone National Park took place during the 2nd and 3rd week of May. As usual for spring in the park, we saw all types of weather. It was cold and heavy snow the first 2 days. The weather then turned a lot warmer and we had a lot of snow melt. The park rivers were at the highest mark that we had seen in several years. The park should have a good summer. There was a noticeable scarcity of both black bear and grizzlies compared to previous years. There appeared to be a lot more wolves, both close and spotting scope distance. As you can see by the gallery, we tried to take photos of a greater variety of wildlife. Some of the highlights on this trip was the mother badger and her family of four. They would put on quite a show for those willing to spend time at the entrance to her den. She would bring them out at least once during the day.  The baby bighorns also put on a show on the cliffs of the Gardiner River near the northern entrance to the park. The wolves taking down the elk in the lake was a sad thing to see, but that is all part of the life in the park.  All in all there is never a bad trip to YNP. Some are better than others. It still is a very magical place and we try to make the long trip from Texas at least once but most of the time, twice a year.
