World Rhino Day

This was one of the last photos I took of Nola, when she was the fourth surviving Northern White Rhino in existence at the +San Diego Zoo Safari Park. She has passed away since then, and she is a reminder how many animals are on the brink of extinction and will disappear from our planet within our lifetimes. http://www.worldrhinoday.org/ #worldrhinoday

Best Friends

A bit of background on this pic... on the left is my sister's dog and on the right is her best friend's dog. Several years ago, they both ended up adopting these dogs though they didn't know it at the time. (Both live in different states). When they got together, it was amazing how similar these two dogs look! Even their names are almost the same... Codie and Colby.

So it was a lot of fun to see these two dogs play together last weekend like long lost sisters. Who knows... perhaps they are!

(Continuing #nationaldogday   theme for another day!)

It's National Dog Day!

Celebrating dogs who bring so much love and happiness into our lives.
This is Calvin a couple years ago when I would bring him to work at Google.

What a treat to see a very young baby Gerenuk! I turned the corner, and there it was. Needless to say, this was the highlight of my day! +San Diego Zoo Safari Park

You Scratch My Back, I'll Scratch Yours

--

Do you feel the call of the wild? Want some great safari animal shots but don’t want to spend weeks on an airplane flying to the remote reaches of Africa? Experience the next best thing to actually being on an African Photo Safari!

Join myself, +Tony Corbell and +Rob Hull for a fun and educational experience among the animals. You’ll get the opportunity to capture images of animals in the best light, and great views from our private vehicles as you receive hands-on instruction during our venture around this 1,800 acre center that is home to over 1,000 animals.

This is more than just a basic how-to photo workshop. Learn the ins-and-outs of getting that ‘hero’ shot, including what to look for and how to anticipate animal behavior before you press the shutter. We will demonstrate best practices for capturing great wildlife images as well as post-processing techniques and critiques.

Join us in Glen Rose Texas on Oct. 13 - Oct 16, 2016!

In this case, this little miniature stallion that I photographed last weekend had the most incredible full mane! He was just bigger then a Great Dane and was just too cute!
