Animal photo series

Animal photo series

Over the years I have taken quite a few photos of animals. Today I want to share some of the more memorable ones with you. Fair warning I like the more creepy animals and they do feature in this post.

1~ A lil bent but not broken

1 ~ We visited an animal sanctuary and came across this fella. He was rescued from bad humans, he has a broken back but has healed up. has a chilled life now munching on all the fruits he can find.

2 ~ Om nom nom

And thes are a few of his other lizard buddies. The day was quite chilly and they seemed a bit camera shy.


3 ~ One of the best photographs I’ve taken with my phone. This majestic animal I believe is an kudu or eland. I forget. And of course did not label the photographs properly.

Here we have a spring buck, kudus, zebras, some tiny deer and another eland


4 ~ These are ostriches. Stating the obvious, but they are really big birds and super fast.

Some feathered friends.

Sometimes I totally forget to check the settings on my camera. I have taken great photographs only to find them out of focus! I annoy myself. But I suppose this is the only way to learn.

Some other creepy creatures from the same habitat.


6 ~ And I leave you with this shot. The only butterfly that sat still long enough for me to capture its essence.
