Most followers of the site will know that Chris is currently travelling in Botswana, probably hiding out in a “hide” somewhere, witnessing and no doubt photographing much of Sth Africa”s amazing wildlife…
So I thought I’d get the juices flowing by sharing an album of some shots Chris took during an afternoon at the Auckland Zoo last year (with kids in tow), while out testing the new II series 300 f2.8L and 400 f2.8L for Canon.
This is just to remind enthusiastic photographers that if you can’t quite get to the wilds of South Africa (or the jungles of Borneo, or the icy extremes of Alaska) there are still opportunities out there to take amazing photos of animals. Look at New Zealand photographer Rachel Hale’s success with gorgeous portraits of domestic animals!

Until we hear from Chris and can share in his South African experiences… Enjoy!
