Yes... I waited 2 hours watching that and didn't get one bite! 😊

EYE CONTACT

Superior and self-confident cats, like this adult female leopard, normally do not bother to give the photographer as much as a glimpse. This time "Pretty Girl" made an exception. Maybe it was because we were waiting for her to come through the bush and she was not expecting us to be there. I really love how she makes eye contact with me.

Another thing to say about this image is when you photograph through the leaves or in some or another way make sure to include the environment, often it makes a more interesting picture than just photograph the wildlife in the open. In this case also it tells something more about the leopards; they are ambush predators.

The photograph is taken in Maasai Mara, Kenya in July 2019 whilst on safari with Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp.

THE ICON OF MAASAI MARA

What is more iconic than the Wildebeest? In Mara we have the wildebeests all the year around, not only during the migration in July to October. This because some herds of wildebeest are resident doing the "mini migration" inside the Mara ecosystem.

If you like to explore the Maasai Mara and do a photographic safari with special adapted safari vehicles for low angle photography, email us at mail@oltepesi.com or visit www.oltepesi.com for information and inspiration. We still have availability in 2020.

Very beautiful!

A LEOPARD CROSSING THE RIVER...

... is not a daily sighting if you take into account being positioned down in the river bank yourself ready and waiting with your camera when she calmly appears and walks over the river. But this was not a lucky coincidence, at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp the guides are experienced working with photographers. By knowing the Maasai Mara as the inside of their pockets and knowing how to read the movement pattern of the wildlife as well, they get their guests – mostly professional wildlife photographers and photo enthusiasts – in the best possible angle for their photography. In this occasion the Oltepesi guide knew exactly where the leopard would cross and we rushed over and found ourselves the best position downstream the river. Kudos to the Oltepesi guides!

I can 100% vouch for that...because I was there watching this. We arrived at the sighting of the Leopard. A number of other cars were already there. Their passengers excitedly photographing the Leopard which was sitting in a bush. Our guide, John Siololo immediately turned away from the crowd and went a few hundred metres down the river, into the river bed, telling us to be patient as the Leopard is going to walk down into the river bed and cross the river in front of us. And that she did...which is why we got shots like this one by Arnfinn Johansen :-)

DE FATTIGE LANDS SYKDOM

Unødig blindhet rammer alle generasjoner i Afrika. Å se et barn leie en blind voksen er ikke et uvanlig syn, og årsaken er ofte grå stær – som kan behandles for 250 kroner!

Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp og undertegnede støtter Right to Sight Norge sitt arbeid med dette i Kenya. Det kan du også gjøre! For mer informasjon, se www.righttosight.no.

THE POOR COUNTRIES' DISEASE

Unnecessary blindness affects all generations in Africa. Watching a child assisting a blind adult is not an unusual sight, and the cause is often cataracts - which can be treated for 30 USD!

Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp and the undersigned support Right to Sight Norway's work in Kenya. You can do that too! For more information, visit www.righttosight.no.Den prisbelønte naturfotografen, Arnfinn Johansen, har generøst donert flotte bilder fra sin Afrika-serie til Right to Sight!

NYDUSJET TIL HELGA?

Ikke alle er det. For flodhestene gir gjørmen++ beskyttelse for sola, og når dammen de er i nærmest er uttørket, så kan det se slik ut. God helg!

Takk til Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp og John Siololo samt deltakerne fra Zoom Fotoresor for en flott tur.
