Tom - Adding blue to the sky really enhances the eagle owl shot. nappamat's Martial Eagle shot is my current screen saver and I may have to rotate this shot in as my next screen saver.

Sherry - yeah, was sort of a killer itinerary, probably that's why next year we are cutting back a bunch The Bee Eaters, not just one photo, in the title I say it is 4 photos that have been combined, PhotoShop. Started with one photo that had the birds on the ground a couple in the air then added birds in the air from three other photos. Guess this is really not a "fair" thing to do for a nature picture but I wanted to show how those birdies just fly constantly all over. Still really doesn't show the brilliant colors of the birds though.
GD - a blue sky in the photo is natural. You can see from the lighting on the owl the strong sunlight so likely a clear sky. As typical with such photos, sky just gets washed out to white because of the owl in the shade/backlit. So, works naturally to add the sky, just has to be done carefully. Well, you ceratinly do need another Eagle Owl screen saver

This post only to update the location of this safari's photos.
Sorry, nothing else new to add/report, same report from October 2006. I wish I could edit the report and make such changes to it without having to top it this way. But, anyway, the original report has photos located in Kodak gallery. I have since moved them to the SmugMug gallery. Why? Because at Kodak the only photo color background is white while at SmugMug you have a choice and I like black. SmugMug also lets you put up larger images and fancy-up your title page and such. Anyway address for photos is now -
http://tomgraham.smugmug.com

regards - tom

Well, I'm glad you topped this off - I missed your 2007 photos entirely. WOW! is all I can say. You got so many fabulous photos and were blessed with some really nice light. I really can't point to any favorites - too many. But I'm always a sucker for cats - the lioness and her little cubs were just outstanding.

All without shooting in raw mode... ;-)

Thanks Sharon. RAW mode, nope, like you say. Funny, neither the sun nor the animals seem to care whether I use RAW or not
