Peek-a-Boo - Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa

What a great experience I had on our trip to South Africa. After 20 hours on the plane, missing my connection and finally getting home, I am just scratching the surface looking at my photos. I am not a wildlife photographer so this trip was a learning experience for me. The huge benefit to me was shooting with more experienced wildlife photographers so that I could learn some techniques. One of my good friends, James Keith is someone that I learned a lot from. The photos that he captured are amazing. One of the things I learned from him was patience (something that I am not good at) and pre-visualization. Occasionally, I would turn to see what James was shooting and he often was looking in a different direction than the rest of us. In this case, he was looking in the direction of this Steenbuck and realized that he was waiting for it to peek above the branch and look in our direction. So I waited patiently and captured (okay, maybe stole) this composition.
