Living Wild

Living Wild

For 16 years I served the Namibian Government through the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (Directorate Parks and Wildlife Management), similar to the US Fish and Wildlife Services. During this time, I managed the Khaudum National Park and Tsumkwe areas (formerly known as Bushmanland) in the North East of this country. Needless to say, I was surrounded by wildlife abound, and beauty unimaginable through wildlife free. After meeting my dream best friend (from St. Louis in the USA), we got married and our son Daniel was born 5 years ago. It was time to get out of the "bush" and closer to civilization and facilities needed to raise a family (such as a hospital). I resigned from Wildlife Management and accepted a post managing a private Game Reserve, still remaining with the animals I so love and cherish (but with a hospital an hour's drive away). And this is where I am now. Doing what I love. Sometimes I have a camera on hand, most of the time not. I am trying my best to make a point of it, but sometimes forget my camera at home. Hope you enjoy my photos ... of wondrous wildlife free, beautiful, majestic and magnificent.

      Superb shot. Love the slow shutter speed which makes the water look mystical ... besides the obvious fantastic shot of the snake. Absolutely stunning !!!!!!!!!!
    4. Great species John, and welcome to Jungle Dragon. Your presence will be one of expertise and experience. I actually know a number of Sullivan's ... do you know the Sullivan Journal from the St. Louis area in Missouri ? That would be so funny if you do ....

      That's it!!! Thank you so very much Wildflower. In my book it shows it with a yellow beak, and that clearly threw me off. Fantastic, thanks again. You are great!

    7. Beautiful photo, and butterfly. Great colors.
    8. Yes, its head hanging down. Not a great picture as exposure was an issue, but the idea was the beak. Thanks for commenting Ferdy.

      Thanks for the comment Mark. Yes, they are doing really well over here. Apparently one the highest densities in the whole of Africa (although it is extremely difficult to determine population dynamics as they do not need to drink water regularly, and to sight them is extremely rare).
    10. Thank you very much ... it means a lot to me. I must say, my favorite shots are minimalism or simplistic. Nothing to distract one from the main subject. Thanks again for the kind words.
