Happy for you that you got out of the office for a few days. Your photographic skills have not suffered from your time out of the bush. The black and white of the elephant bull is nothing short of amazing! I loved the heron picture as well! Thank you for posting these, it is a true pleasure to view your works of art.

Hi Warren

I use a Nikon D80 and a 80-200mm F2.8 Nikon lens. It is a slightly older model lens without image stabiliser, but still does a good job provided you have a beanbag to rest on.

Magnificent photos! I could almost feel the nice coolness of the day. I imagine it will be difficult to get back behind the desk again. Hope all team members are healthy and happy again – you’re all so wonderful at what you do there.

Your photographs are really stunning, I had the wonderful opportunity to have worked with John Varty in that bush in the early years of his documentary making career, the photographs bring it all back…thank you for that…

Doyle,

Does this mean you are no longer a ranger?…We were hoping to meet up again on our next visit.
