Kenya, Africa - Misc Species
As mentioned, photographing in Kenya was so exciting. I was floored with the diversity of species within the Masai Mara and just how habituated they were to safari vehicles. Included are some of the additional species photographed during the trip, besides the cats in the prior post. The featured image was one of my favorite Giraffe shots. The mountain in the background is Mount Kenya, the tallest mountain in the country. My goal was to frame the Giraffe's head with the similar profile of the mountain.
We were fortunate to see both White and Black Rhinos. Below is a White Rhinoceros.
