My First Safari Photo

Usually, I blog about an issue that I'm facing, or maybe to pass on something I have learned the hard way. Today, though, I just want to say Yahoo for my first (I hope of many) safari photo:

I took 10 plane rides, about as many train rides, many boat rides, a million jeep rides, and even an elephant ride to get from the US to Botswana (where this photo was taken), Zambia and South Africa. I can't say enough about what a great experience this was, and I hope to have many more photos to share.

On the topic of safaris in general, I had little idea what to expect. I'll put together a list of things I wish I had known before I got on the plane--but only after I edit a few more images of leopards, elephants and hippos :)

Hi Charles,
what a great photo! You're really lucky!
Unfortunately during my several trips through southern Africa I had not the chance yet to get so close to the Leopard as you.
Africa is really great and I am looking forward seeing more from you...
Ciao, Holger
