Wildlife photography competition

Back in 2012, I was in Africa for a 2 weeks trip with my best friend. We decided to spend one day in the Chobe National park alongside the Zambezi river.

I took with me my favorite lens, the Pentax FA* 300 and we embarked on the boat that took us on the river to go to see wildlife! At this place, Zambezi river is separated in 2 by a huge island where stand animals like buffalo, elephant, crocodiles and so much more.

It’s possible to approach very closely and in safety all this animals, that’s a very great place when you own a tele lens as I am.

On this island, we saw this lonely elephant who came in our direction, not really threatening but not really peaceful either. Fortunately we were in safety on the boat!

I took 4 pictures of this elephant. 3 from face, 1 from back. Here are the best clichés I took of him.

You can also see a picture of the local eagle who stood on the top of the only tree around waiting for a prey!

Don’t even think to hide!

We had a lot of fun in this national park. I hope being able to go back in such a beautiful place to see more wildlife and take pictures of them!!
