The veld around me is dry. the winter sun of has not only baked the earth of its life, it has s****d the existence of all around. no birds flap over head, no antelope browse on the grass & no lizards scurry across the ground.

i sit in silence

i’m in the shade but still i am hot. the only pool of water for many kilometres around stands near me, tepid & still. i don’t feel the urge for a sneaky swim regardless of how hot i am.

i wonder if i had made the right choice. was this area really where i needed to be. i had come here after all for animals. right now i struggle to see a single bee.

i have been here before. sitting & waiting. the water then, looked much better than now. maybe i should have left that experience as it was, even though the images did not turn out so good.

i continue to sit & wait.

as i wait i study the elephant highways that converge around where i am. bone dry & dusty, they tell little of the giants that have used them in the past few days. dry crumbly dung is all that tells that such beasts have ever come before.

i continue to sit & wait.

the afternoon light is harsh & i consider my settings. have i got them right, do i have the best angle. this sitting & waiting is doing me no good, too much time to think.

as i consider changing my ideas, my focus & my position i see movement on the horizon, life soon appears.

i no longer sit & wait.

i watch & stare as the ele’s come closer. i can only prey they choose my track. the time really is now.

slowly they come closer.
each step brings them closer to my lens. they are on the path i hoped, now i can only set off the shutter & begin to start the wait once again.

Complete with night-vision goggles, drones, gps equipment and high-powered weaponry, the helicopter flies above and carries within its fuselage a highly agile and responsive team.
the helicopter is scouting for elephants.
the helicopter is full of poachers.
alongside the increasing militarisation of anti-poaching units, the poachers themselves have also ramped up the technology with which they’re using to k**l these magnificent creatures- and if the recent killings in botswana gives us any indication as to how- they can sometimes be killed in droves.

contrary to common belief, poaching is not driven by poverty or desperation. it’s an opportunistic crime, which can yield lucrative earnings for an ordinary poacher- and that’s enough to risk their lives for. and along with their enhanced weaponry and technology, a more sophisticated kind of criminal network has spawned that has intricately weaved links throughout the black market, and strong cooperative ties with highly-intelligent criminal syndicates. evidence suggests that the associated money laundering supports the financing of terrorist groups including the al-shabab and the lord’s resistance army.

this is no basic battle- the war on ivory needs as much sophistication as fighting terrorism or the international drug trade.

while poaching has been deeply covered and widely reported, the crisis continues, seemingly unabated.  through well-funded operations, combined with the falling elephant numbers, it would seem that the poachers are winning.
meanwhile, we take stock of the discovery of almost 100 felled elephants near the okavango delta in botswana recently, and continue to wonder why some governments can go back on legislations that have successfully protected wildlife within its borders for a substantial amount of time.

the reality is clear and stark- if all things continue as they are, the african elephant will disappear from the face of the earth forever. and there’s no going back on that.

Watcha doooin up there? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
here’s a pretty strange image of an egyptian goose perched high up on the branches of a dead tree. one morning while walking around the dam, i spotted this goose at the top of a tree! we are so used to seeing these birds swimming on the waters surface or waddling along the edges, making it a shot i had to get.

Abstract ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ as this stunning bull elephant approached our vehicle, it was only a few meters from me. looking through the viewfinder and all i saw was wrinkles! i found an interesting composition and loved the way that the tusk stuck out against the dark shadowed background.

On a trip to pilanesberg in june this year we were treated to a special sighting of the cheetah mother they call rain. she was closely followed by her one remaining cub. they walked through the grass and stood next to the bushes, they even walked across the road in front of us before resting in the shade.
this was breathtaking, my camera sang as i tried to take in everything the sounds of the bush, the colours, the patterns before me, the smell, the heat everything.
one of my favorite photos from this day, some of which i’ve already shared, was this one. it’s not a clear shot of this amazing animal, you can’t see all her markings, her eyes or the full length of her tail. but what i can see is reality, these are wild animals in the wild after all. the grass was long but perfect for hiding herself and her cub, the colour was dry matching her coat, the sun was warming and the air cool.
this is rain in her territory, where she belongs. nature working at its best in harmony as it should be.
sighting in south africa’s pilanesberg national park
