  1. Hi Mike. My wife and I are going to Mashatu at the end of July and are really looking forward to it. Seeing you photograph and reading about them has really set my mind going. We are both keen amateur photographers who love the wildlife, having done three previous safaris in South Africa. I am desperately hoping that we see the leopards as this is the one big cat I have never seen in the wild. Many thanks for sharing your blog – your photographs are superb. Keith Smith

  2. Congrats Howie Mike Condy certainly wasn’t exaggerating at the 71 Vintage reunion about your work, this is a fantastic site and well visiting not just for your photographic prowess but also the stories/facts that accompany them. Keep up the good work.
    All the best

  3. Your work is gorgeous! I stumbled across your images online which lead me to your webpage, then was so happy to see you are a fellow Zimbabwean artist.
    I am a painter and currently working on flocks of birds and saw your image of the Ellies and the Quelia’s… it is awesome:)
    Best of luck

    • Thanks Nicole, I appreciate your comments more so after having looked at your blog. You are very talented and I love the the birds flocking around the human figure and blaze of colour. Now I have met you through the blog I will look out for the flock of birds surrounding animals and let you know when I get some worthwhile images. You might like to see my post on mumurations and the video link embedded in it. The murmurations are exquisite. Have fun, Mike

  4. Hi Mike, browsing through your gorgeous photos has been far more therapeutic than working! Therapy is good! Love Jude x

    • Thank you Jude – I am glad you you find browsing this website therapeutic. I am trying to visually transport people in the cities and other countries out into the African bush. I am also trying to show how much intelligence there is in the natural world which we still have to become aware about. I really enjoyed Mashatu with you and Bill.

  5. Greetings, I was just taking a look at your website and submitted this message via your “contact us” form. The “contact us” page on your site sends you messages like this via email which is why you’re reading my message at this moment right? That’s the holy grail with any type of advertising, making people actually READ your ad and this is exactly what you’re doing now! If you have something you would like to promote to thousands of websites via their contact forms in the U.S. or to any country worldwide send me a quick note now, I can even focus on particular niches and my pricing is super reasonable. Send a reply to: lethamidurr@gmail.com

  6. Hi Mike – remember me ? The mad ear for a foot woman on the Chobe.
    I love reading your blog and seeing all your beautiful photos. You put so much effort into each one and I particularly like the quotes. I can’t wait to see your photos from the Chobe trip.
    Best wishes
    Natalie

    • Hi Natalie super hear from you. Thanks for your comments. I love doing the blog and get to do a lot of research for it which builds my knowledge. I really hope your ear is ok, and you did not even give me an earful and were very gracious about it!! I felt really bad, a real rooky mistake! Hope the rest of your trip went well and you got some wonderful pics. Best wishes Mike

      • Yes, our trip was amazing thanks!
        Please could you send me the specs of your Olympus camera you were using on the Chobe.
        Many thanks
        Natalie

      • Hi Natalie, the specs of my Olympus kit are: camera OM-D E-M1X 20.4mp, Zuiko lens 40-150mm constant F4 zoom . I have subsequently bought a Zuiko ED 150-400mm zoom constant F4 lens for my bird photography. The Olympus kit is much less expensive than the Nikon kit. The main advantage of the Olympus kit is that it is so much lighter which is easier to handle when photographing flying birds and easier to travel with. The Olympus OM-D E10 Mark II and Mark III camera bodies are smaller, lighter and more affordable. You will need converters too for your birds. These cameras use a four third sensor which doubles the focal length and also creates more noise in the image so you would need to edit the image in post processing using software like DXO Photolab 4 or Topaz denoise. If you are keen on your bird photography it will require more sophisticated camera kit and editing. Google some of this kit to get a sense of it and whether it is for you. Happy to help further. Best wishes, Mike.
