Nubian (Rothschild’s) Giraffe: Lake Mburo National Park, Uganda, August 2022 — Not everyone thinks that Nubian (or Ugandan) Giraffe and Rothschild’s are the same sub-species of Giraffe…but there is no doubt that the Giraffes in Uganda used to be called Rothschild’s. These shots are from our second encounter with this same tower of giraffes on our early morning walking safari on our last day in Africa. Coming to the end here. This time we were even closer, almost right in amongst them. Sony Rx10iv at 469mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications.

Red-breasted Nuthatch, Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse: Kennebunk, Maine, USA, March 2023 — Three of our daily visitors spent most of their snowy day on our deck…or so it seemed. Despite the snow falling it was excellent light for detail. So maybe an uncommonly good look at some common birds…our faithful trio at the feeders. Sony Rx10iv at 600mm equivalent.
