There’s just something about being surrounded by wildlife in my low moments that just brings me solace. It’s not something I’d have discovered without this amazing blockchain. I never would have been so interested in photography to the extent of getting out of my comfort zone to go out and do the necessary.
I spent a good part of my past Sunday at The Nairobi Animal Orphanage just mingling and observing wildlife. For those of you that are not new to my STEEM blog, you might recall I visited this place sometime last year and drop 1 or 2 vlogs about it. While I did manage to capture both some photography and video content, this time was solely to take my new canon M50 on a test drive, and I must say, it was rather fun and fulfilling.
Besides the plenty of lions that seem to have taken over the orphanage, I did manage to capture some buffalo shots, leopards, monkeys, cheetah,warthogs, the ultimately dangerous African Wild-dog, some African wild cats, some birds of some sort , hyenas, and so on..
Yes, I said dogs and cats, some of you may think that’s not necessary or such a biggy, but trust me, the original African Wild dogs and cats can be extremely dangerous.
Not Sure why this African dog needs so much water, more like a swimming pool or just it’s way to kill boredom. Whatever the case, it seemed pretty happy about it. This is definitely one of those animals I’d never want to come across with either in the mountains or the African Jungles. There are books, myths and beliefs written about them, the sort you’d hear about a kid and pee on yourself all week. I kid you not.
And of course where there’s a dog there’s a cat. Isn’t that why they call it raining cats & dogs? 😀
More of the Cat family…
Most of you probably love this kind of print on your clothes right? I can see why, it’s beautiful af.
One thing I gotta say though, the grid kind of made it hard to take proper photos. You totally can’t compare this with taking photos in the open African jungle. Remember those Masai Mara posts I did a few weeks ago? So much better! Also the animals at the orphanage are a bit far from the fence, so without a good zoom lens it becomes hard to get great shots.
I think I’ve done a couple of posts on Buffalos this past year. I had never seen a baby before, they are actually more calm and less angry unlike the adults who are always agitated and ready to strike at any given moment.
I’m gonna end this post here. I’m not a sucker for super long posts, plus I wanna make sure you guys come back for more tomorrow. Do you like the African wildlife or any kind of wildlife for that matter? Leave me a comment below.
