The pure emotion of overwhelming excitement when reviewing your old files?
Well, this shoot is not that old, less then 2 months, but going through the series of images we captured on this day got my heart racing, brings me back to this moment in time when one of my all time dreams came true.
I have had lots of these moments during my career., I have seen some incredible scenes in our world of nature. But this one was special. She is regarded as T19 - Krishna. One spectacular animal, nothing else I have seen in the world compares to her beauty. and I really mean Nothing!
Photos never do any animal justice. I use this analogy. Look through a car magazine, and see your favorite sports car, of hot-rod. Mine? A 1971 Dodge Challenger, or a 1968 Charger., seeing the image is one thing, driving it is another. (another dream)
So, face to face with this majestic animal was an experience. 4,000 shots, my wonderful 1 guest took more! We saw Krishna and her 3 cubs on at least 12 different occasions during 16 safaris. I can only hope that they are surviving well, safe, and well fed for many years to come.
So here she is, the epitome natures beauty.
