Sony a6400 – Stuck in Customs

Family Bath Time

Daily Photo – Family Bath Time

Bathing in muddy water gets a bad rap. It’s pretty fun… and I guess if your family was always naked and kind of dirty, why not? I’ve bathed a lot in mud at music festivals and it wasn’t so bad! Sure, it makes a bit of a mess of your tent for the next morning, but that’s the next morning’s problem.

Stewing Away

Daily Photo – Stewing Away

It looks like this lion is just kind of naturally angry. I suppose that is some sort of a natural selection trait. Lions that look super friendly and happy may be easily slain by other lions. However, I wonder if animals that look happier (like dolphins and dogs) are actually the ones surviving more because humans think they look more cute and affable, so we kill less of them.

The Watering Hole

Daily Photo – The Watering Hole

We found a beautiful tree in Botswana where we decided to have a picnic in the wild while we waited on elephants. We didn’t know if they would actually come by, but, lo and behold, they did. There must have been about 50 of them, a collection of a few families. They would walk a while, get a drink, take a bath, and get back in the convoy. Fun fact you may not know… what is a grouping of elephants called? A memory. Maybe one of the greatest names of a group of animals ever.

Deer-like Creature in Africa

Daily Photo – Deer-like Creature in Africa

Wow I wish I knew my animals better. When I roll around Africa, I’m constantly asking, what is THAT animal called again? And the guide is like, “Oh, that’s an ELEPHANT, Trey.” I’m like okay… since when did they have trunks? I think the guides think I am dumb or something… but, actually more, seriously, there are about 100 deer-like creatures with different horns. This one is called like a Springbok or something. Or maybe not. I really don’t know. It’s not an elephant, though.

Baby and Mommy Elephant

Daily Photo – Baby and Mommy Elephant

I think elephants must be my favorite land-based animal. I’m really looking forward to an AI that lets us talk to animals. Surely an AI can make something like that, you know? It can’t be too impossible… But as soon as that works, I’m gonna have to figure out how to do a zoom call to Africa or something because I have so many questions!

Giraffes in the Wild

Daily Photo – Giraffes in the Wild

Most of the sunsets in Africa had this perfect yellow “Lion King” moment. On this particular day, we jumped out of the car (the guides really don’t like that much) – and I ran around a bit just to get this angle. Giraffes can move pretty fast! I wasn’t too worried about getting munched up by a lion or something… well, I was a little worried!

Male Lion in the Wild

Daily Photo – Male Lion in the Wild

How cool are lions? These male lions are particularly cool looking, even though they spend most of the day doing almost nothing. I seriously think they nap about 20 hours a day, so I was lucky to see this guy. He was basically simply walking from one nap location to the next!

Elephants Marching Across Zimbabwe

Daily Photo – Elephants Marching Across Zimbabwe

This photo is made from about four different photos. I couldn’t quite get the exact photo I wanted at the resolution I desired with a single shot, so I zoomed in to get a variety of shots to stitch together later. If you zoom in to the full resolution, you’ll be able to see all the cool detail on those amazing elephants.

My friend Rene sent this to me… close your eyes and use headphones! 🙂

These guys look pretty docile but you don’t want to get on their bad side. Some of you may know this already, but the more forward-facing the eyes are (like a wolf), the more of a predator they are. The more the eyes are on the side (like a horse), the more they are often prey. So this will give you a pretty good idea what side of the equation the baboon is on! 🙂

Mom and Baby Elephant

Travel Photography Tutorial

If you haven’t gotten my New Tutorial, which is currently on sale, then you’re really missing out! Here’s a trailer for it:

Daily Photo – Mom and Baby Elephant

I don’t know if that’s a mom or dad. I’m just assuming it’s a mom because, if I were a baby, I’d feel like my mom is more likely to take care of me while dad is off rolling around in some mud pit with his friends. You can see some of this footage in the video above!
