One of my great ambitions is to go on safari in Africa, to see some of the most iconic animals on earth roaming free living as they should. Of course photographing my experience would be top of the list but there can be no guarantees a visitor will see what they expect, but you could just see what you don't expect too. I know from the many times I've tried to capture the best photos of my pets that patience is the key, that animals will always be animals with no idea of cooperating for the photographer. I've learnt that waiting and watching, observing their behaviour can help you anticipate what they might do next. I understand that you have to have respect and don't interfere with animals in an attempt to get them to pose for the camera because it usually doesn't work. Then there are times when you should just put down the camera and take in what unfolds before you, enjoy the experience without worrying about taking pictures. I've learnt is that It's easy to miss the experience when you are always behind a camera snapping away, that sometimes it pays to just put it down and be in the moment.
