Totti is name of this wanna be alpha male chimpanzee (Pan Pan). This male chimp came down from the canopy to the forest floor with one motive. Desire. A young female chimpanzee is above him in the canopy. Totti is doing his best to entice her away from other males. He poses and gestures and calls in every seductive way possible. But alas to no avail. His advances go un noticed. The female chimpanzee ignores him. Totti the wanna be alpha male chimpanzee. Lies back with hands behind his head and dreams of what could have been.

I get extremely close to these very wild animals, often within a few feet of them. I don’t use telephoto lenses. This is because I want to see as much of the sky and landscape as possible–to see the animals within the context of their environment. That way, the photos become as much about the atmosphere of the place as the animals. And being that close to the animals, I get a real sense of intimate connection to them, to the specific animal in front of me. Sometimes a deliberate feeling that they’re almost presenting themselves for a studio portrait. -says Nick Brandt.

There is something reaffirming when on observing the behaviour of Elephants. These Elephants are protecting their young against a perceived threat. It is so easy to attach human emotions to their behaviour but to be honest we as a race could probably be learn and benefit from the tolerance and respect that show to each other.
This is one of my favorite wildlife prints of elephants. I love elephants, I think most people do. So I was a bit frustrated when after a week I could not find this herd. It was on my last day of safari when I came upon them. I was annoyed as I could see from a distance they were just leaving a waterhole. But it turned out to be a very serendipitous moment as they turned and walked in my direction, The waterhole was at higher vantage point than I was. Which meant I could bet this unique point of view. *

The Deadly Dance of Stallion Zebras as Fight over the Rights to Females
This is one my favorite monchrome fine art Giraffe prints. I sometimes struggle composition wise with giraffes. But on this particular day the Giraffes were wonderful models. Each Giraffe seem to have his or her own signature pose. A portrait photographer could not have wished for more. Needless to say I was so thankful. I had the easy job of clicking the shutter.
Most afternoons this Old Black Rhino would amble towards his favorite watering hole. He never seemed perturbed by our presence. It is a wildlife photographers dream to have such a dangerous animal so close and relaxed in your presence. This allowed me to create this wonderful portrait as he kick ups dust to cover his midden after marking his territory.
