As a keystone species, elephants help maintain forest and savanna ecosystems for other flora and fauna, and are integrally tied to rich biodiversity. In tropical forests, elephants create clearings and gaps in the canopy that encourage tree regeneration. In the savannas, they reduce bush cover to create an environment favorable to a mix of browsing and grazing animals.

Kruger National Park, South Africa - September 2017. Why did the 🐘 cross the road? 🌿 Caught this big guy trying to hitchhike whilst we were out in the bush 🚗 👋🏼 Think the driver got a bit of a shock when he looked in his rear view mirror! 👀 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

For me the problem with living in Buffalo is how do I continue my art in winter? I love taking portraits outdoors. But winter kind of puts a damper on things. Right now I am working on gathering the equipment to be able to continue taking portraits inside. But in the meantime this is how I stay creative. I am currently working on getting prints ready for my Etsy shop. I can't wait to finish this elephant for prints.

Getting up close to one of the Big-5 animals of Africa is something that should be on everyone’s bucket-list (at least 5 times). We all know the #LionKing movie well. Seeing this majestic animal with your own eyes however totally makes up for not seeing the movie in 3D :-) This lioness was in a huge group of females in the #SabiSands Game Reserve in South Africa. They had spotted giraffe in the distance and were very interested in attempting a kill. She was using the grass to hide herself. We were lucky enough to witness this group on the hunt for over an hour. The giraffe finally got scent of them and fled. A wildlife safari to one of the reserves in South Africa will be one of the best things you do in 2018. Which one of the Big-5 animals is favourite and why?
