On a recent trip to the Kgalagadi I saw so many bat-eared foxes; in one afternoon I saw over four groups, all with more than seven foxes in each family. I had been watching one particular group for a while when suddenly one fox turned its head, looking at something close by.


Another fox joined and soon the rest of them where all on high alert. Eventually I saw what they were looking at… a snake! I laughed as they went for the snake and the snake re-acted and then they re-acted and jumped in the air.

They chased the snake into a drie doring bush where the snake managed to make its way to the top of the bush (see photo below).

The foxes then lost interest and moved on and all involved were un-harmed!

As a child my father used to take photo's of almost everything and that is where my passion for photography started. Then my husband gave me my first camera, a Minolta that changed my life. As my interest grew in photography, I upgraded to new and better equipment. I hope my shots elicit an emotional response in the viewer. My favourite place in the world is the Kgalagadi. To me this place just has some magic in its bones and many of my photos, as well as much of my blog content, is born there. This deep connection to the animals and bush, is quite simply the love of my life. My hope is that you will feel my deep love and respect for animals and nature through my photographs and in reading some of my blogs you can experience a little what I see when I am out there, doing the thing I love most. You can read more on my adventures and see more of my photography on my website
