Just want to say I soooo enjoy your work.  I recently fulfilled a lifetime dream and participated in an african safari in Botswana.  I saw many of the animals that you have photographed and was able to get some pretty decent photos myself.  lol  I would love to be living in africa so I could just settle into the wild to get those amazing shots of the birds flying and the animals interacting.  I guess I just have to live out that dream vicariously through your photography.  Your work is amazing.
