Kangombe, the veteran

Kunene area, Namibia

 

I chose to portray this old rhino, with his broken tusk and torn ear, as a tribute to his long life (was already 40 when we met).

He was named Kangombe after a Herero chef.


Simba Jike

 

 

Beautiful memory of the Serengeti where this lioness let us admire her for quite a while, wanting us to focus on her and not on her cubs well hidden in the nearby Skopje.


The king !

 

Relying on his power and unquestioned authority, the lion is reigning on the infinite plain of  the Serengeti.

 


Happy together

Hoanibe River - Namibia

 

Mother and infant were happily strolling along the Hoanibe River bank.


Angry boy

Doro Nawas (Namibie)

 

This angry male is shouting his anger as a last warning before charging.


Let's play

Doro Nawas (Namibia)

 

These two young elephants were playing without a care in the world, in the fading light of late afternoon in Door Nawas (Namibia).

We were too close from her family. She made it very clear we better had to move along !

On the watch

This edition, number 1/8 has been molded and edited by myself at Stuart Roussel's  facilities.

Serengeti (Tanzania)

Stone quiet, concentrated, this cheetah was sitting by the trail, her two cubs at her side, focusing on some impalas

A while later, we were lucky enough to admire her amazing velocity when she rushed on her preys.
