Baby Elephant and Mom

Wildlife photography can be a difficult subject for the ordinary tourists.

You are probably on a moving vehicle and you cannot resort to a tripod.IMG_0056

The animals need first to be located and you are not able to get very close to them.

The usual compact camera with a limited zoom means that you are unable to capture their photos in any detail.IMG_0054

The camera will need to be hand held. The zoom means that the picture will become coarser, the shake and the zoom mean that you do not have a picture of good resolution.

Here are a couple of photos with baby elephants in them, all taken by my wife in Namibia. Please enjoy.
