This is simply magic. You come to the classroom Friday morning and your 5-6 years old kids show you an exhibition with the title Wildlife Project. The drawings are copy of your images, including myself handling a cockatoo. This is priceless!

They are fascinating animals, for me, one of the beautiful cats I have ever seen before in the wild. Meet this guys at the Ngorongoro conservation area in Tanzania early this year, where I have spent more than 3 hours clicking it in the wild.

Next stop!

Can't wait to board the plane towards my next destination, the Kalahari... Shall spend ten days traveling around north of South Africa and south of Botswana. I have been waiting almost two years to meet the guy I am following as a guru and reference inside the wildlife photography. Time is now!

Do you know me?

Guess what!

New Visitor

Today we had the pleasure to welcome Caue in our class, he is only eight and completely mad about animals, photography and Africa... For an instant I saw myself forty year ago when I was also mad about all of it. It was a great, really great pleasure to see youngsters involved and interested with nature and the wildlife.
