Most wildlife photographers traveling to (or residing in) Africa are so fixated on capturing big game that they forget that there is much more on offer than just horns, tusks and sharp teeth. Stopping to “smell the flowers” every now and then will reward you with a host of new subjects and experiences!

This week’s theme is not necessarily  just about the things we find while out in the wilderness that require a macro lens, but everything and anything that keeps the African bush ticking!

Something as simple as a well positioned leaf or and unusual rock face combined with a bit of creativity could make for some beautiful photographs, as well as creatures that are taken for granted such as a herd of Impala or your average Guinea Fowl deserve just as many clicks as the Big 5.  Reptiles, insects, feathered friends and things that go bump in the night are also included so go wild!

Keep and eye out for my upcoming All the Small Things workshop on the Wild Eye calendar which we will be including soon!
