Wildlife management became a hot topic again in my neighbourhood. Fallow Deer (Dama dama) population has grown too big, or not?

This week Olive, one of the famous leopards of the Mara, died most likely by hyena or lions. I never saw her during our trip but I met her daughter Bahati and the news reminded me of this photo that I took last April.
Bahati was nervously watching a hyena passing by. I never got the hyena as clearly in the photo as I wanted, but the news trigged my memory and I processed the photo. The body language of Bahati tells the story for me here.

Nice Fallow Deer (Dama dama) from a couple of weeks ago. I like these summer settings with tall grass and velvet antlers.

Started working on my Kenia photos again and this time I did some B&W shots. +David Lloyd showed me some tips and tricks during his Big Cat tour.

Autumn has started and winter is coming. In the morning temperatures are dropping and the Fallow Deer (Dama dama) are getting their winter coat ready. This lady portrayed it beautifully against the darker background of the forest.

Zebra, a species that was not present in large numbers in the Mara around April and also not the easiest to photograph. What to do with a horse that is standing still? More Mara on my site: www.petermaris.com/en #zebra #masaimara #wildlifephotography #mammals

Introduction

I am a Dutch wildlife photographer with a big passion for Deer and Foxes. As a regular visitor to the Amsterdamse waterleidingduinen I got enchanted by their behaviour and I dove deep into their world. During spring I always make a small jump towards Grebes and other birds that sing around my house.

A mechanical engineer by profession most of my spare time is spend outside watching and photographing animals. I prefer locations close to home but also love to travel and recently visited Svalbard and Kenia.

My photos have been used in publications by Naturfoto, Natuurfotopassie, Roots, Grasduinen, E&V magazine, IVN and Svetpic.

Please visit www.petermaris.com for more information and my latest work.
