I think I may have milked my Kenya safari to death. If it’s your first time on my site, please check out the antelopes and giraffeselephants and baboonslions, and zebras. This will be the last post of amateur photos, and then it’s back to writing about Italy. I’ve gotten a lot of new material in the last few weeks, that’s for sure. Anyway, these are all miscellaneous creatures, some of which I can identify with a reasonable degree of probability and some of which I cannot. And one of them is a picture of the park in Kenya. I will do a safari again; that is certain. I will do it in a different way, though; that is also certain. But I wholeheartedly recommend a visit to Kenya and I strongly suggest taking a good camera.

This is the one I have is just terrific and I could not recommend it more highly. It is most excellent and easy to use.

I took all of the close-up animal shots with this Tamron zoom lens, which was also most excellent. Sometimes I just watched the animals through this lens like a telescope.

All of the wide shots, including my friend George‘s favorite (the 8th one on this page), were taken with this spectacular Tamron wide-angle.

And seeing the price tags on these, I am forced to think about the conundrum that I carry around with me every day: doing something that makes enough money to afford these wonderful things, or having the time to actually use them. I am trying to figure out a way to do both.

Anyway, in the meantime, enjoy these FINAL, miscellaneous pictures from my safari.
