In the words of @paigeclaassen “That dudes pecs are ripped” Yup, he definitely hits that bow flex on the regs, old school. This is a #LappetFacedVulture a large bird that usually has the other scavengers moving out of the way when it shows up to the kill. Vultures are a key to a healthy food chain, someone has to do the dirty work and they keep disease down in the wild.
Cheetahs, on the lookout for predators and prey. These cats are a bit low on the predatory food chain in Africa, being light and ultra-fast comes at a price. Once a kill is made Cheetahs are quick to eat; if lions, leopards, hyena or any number of other animals catch wind of the kill they could loose it. Looking forward to spending time with these creatures very soon. Photographed in the #kalahari @tswalu @jacadatravel @danahrichardson @juliefranzrich
Upper #AntelopeCanyon is a legandary place to photograph, especially during Spring/Summer when the light beams are present. The sun needs to be high enough to shine down into the canyon, the falling sand and dust are high-lighted and these stunning rays appear. I shot this photo in 1998, the place was jam packed with people and the working conditions weren’t easy but worth the struggle. I can’t even imagine the crowds these days!

With Winter beginning to show its face here in Colorado it’s been fun taking mini #boulderSafari missions with friends. Filming and photographing wildlife in the snow always makes it twice as interesting, it adds a whole new depth, Here’s a small collection of clips from the last couple snow storms here and around @bouldercolorado Filmed with the @nikonusa #Z6 ❄️/ @dougladzinski @angelajpayne @tjtriage @jonvwebb @kosokun
One from yesterday morning in @rockynps with my dad @dougladzinski. Just as the sun was rising we spotted a big herd of #elk, our position couldn’t have been anymore lucky. The backlight of the sun was rim lighting everything in its path and provided this beautiful fiery background. We watched the herd move across the frost covered meadow for about 30 minutes before they moved into a nearby forest, disappearing from our vantage. Photographed with the @nikonusa #Z7 and 600mm f/4
The living and the fallen. The #MohaveDesert is a place where life is hard and water is a scarce. #JoshuaTree’s are the biggest of the flora found in this rugged landscape, an iconic symbol of the region that is increasingly being threatened as heat index continues to rise. Coupled with California’s drought, J Tree’s and Mohave yucca’s are increasingly in danger of dying off. An estimated 90% of j trees in the park could be gone by the year 2100 if this heat and drought trend continues, a sad and terrifying prospect. Photographed #onassignment for @natgeo
