Three Wildlife Photographs from Namibia

Pelican

I was fortunate to travel to Namibia recently for the first time, and quickly learned why the country is a favourite among photographers.

    These are extraordinary, esp the first pelican, almost like a Japanese ink drawing, strong and delicate. And I like the portraits of children (your previous post) as well.

    You know, Victor, you could try and limit your talents for the rest of us (or at least me) who resort to point-click-delete-try-again photography. Do you have to do great portraits AND great wildlife photography?

    As someone storing an embarrassing amount of blurred and truncated shots of my kitties on my computer, I second Lauren's sentiments. Of course, now I have a wild thought: commission Victor to do portraits of my cats (combining talents as it were)?

    My favourite of the three is the little critter hanging onto the finger. So cute, so unexpected - truly remarkable.

    Hi you guys, thank you so much for your wonderful and generous comments, it gives me such joy to know that the photographs I share with you touch you in some way, and of course it encourages me to go in search of those photographs that you encounter in the most unexpected of places. You guys do know that I'm willing to photograph anything, so bring on the cats, kittens.....
