I got to test my brand new zoom lens in South Africa and Namibia! Lucky me! here´s the first post of (hopefully) a lot with photographs of this amazing countries and their landscapes and animals.
This was my first time in Africa, and for sure I´ll be back, to know other countries and back to these two that are absolutely breathtaking. When I sort the pictures trying to choose the best shots to post, it´s not easy. Beside the amount of pictures taken, it´s how stunning a lot of them are. I take breaks and remember the trip, and how I felt. And now I feel blessed that I got to see all this marvelous this nature has to offer.
In this occasion I´ll show you this family of monkey, mother, father and baby. Very cute!
Happy, that´s how this kids were when I took them them the pictures they wanted (and I wanted too). This was one of those strange episodes in Asia, they didn´t speak english, we didn´t speak their language, but we managed to communacate. And this is they and I happy.
What I love about photographing animals is that they don´t pose. Sometimes they notice you´re there, sometimes they don´t. Sometimes they hide, but generally, they don´t. And at the end of the day you always get a natural ¨pose¨, sometimes NatGeo style, ok, that´s probably an exaggeration!
Man´s best friend first!
Guess this is the other man´s best friend. Though it is in a cage! my gosh!
The rabid crab!
The sleeping beauty…
Crocodile, crocodile, can we cross the river?
Call me chicken.
Polar bear eating a watermelon.
The coyote… keeping an eye on…
Oh! I love the giraffe´s pattern! (can I use pattern in this case)
The white tiger.
Do you need a tissue?
This one has been already here, but she deserves it, she´s so nice!
I don´t like monkeys, but one of us should be here, right?
She has also been here before… (don´t know why I think is a she)
Well, a little late but here it is, the Growth Challenge. I´ll try to keep my blog updated although I´ve been working nearly twelve hours a day this week, so my energies to turn on the computer are very low at the end of the day. Next week is gonna be the same, so plase, be patience.
I guess by this point of the civilization everybody knows about Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia. Some of these temples have trees grown on top and around them. I´ve been told these trees keep the temples standing as they are so old they would fall if they cut out the trees.
