Happy to share a short video of the B&W photo Exhibhition happened recently where I had exhibited my wildlife images with a short interview .
Log on to http://www.ushaharish.com – my new website created with the African wildlife.
The picture of this cheetah was taken at Ndutu, Ngorongoro Conservation Area in Tanzania.

Off for a photo safari to Tanzania for yet another adventure and to be one with the nature…Will keep you all updated about the game!!
So, its been sunny and bright all thru Jan & Feb in Kampala, good for taking pictures…Set out for a birding trip to Mabamba Bay yesterday..But nature was not too kind to show me the birds but presented with an incredible sight of the cloud formation over Lake Victoria. One of the shortest photo trip , I ever had.
The African lion as most of know is the king of the savannah. I have done numerous safari trips, but never got a photographic sight as per my imagination. I was lucky to spot that dream shot during a recent trip to Masai Mara where during a morning game drive, saw this majestic samba sitting over an ant hill basking in the morning light . His mane was swaying in the gentle breeze and the pride on his face was a sight to remember.
During one of the morning game drives in Amboseli National Park in Kenya, I came across this unusual sight of two giraffes playing with each other. The background of the huge Acacia tree caught my attention which is very typical of Amboseli savannah.
Leopards are most of the time elusive and solitary animal. During my Chobe safari in Botswana, this feline was trying to evade our cameras and hiding inside the bush. Photographing this leopard was difficult but worth the long wait.
This is Olare Orok Conservancy just outside the Masai Mara National reserve in Kenya teeming with wildlife. This picture is posted to give a perspective of the distance you could spot a big cat.

This young male was resting near a bush but also was watchful and alert for its next meal. The eyes were ferocious when it turned towards its right looking for a prey.
Thank you all for your wonderful likes, follows and your support. It encourages me more to post African wildlife for you all to enjoy. If I can do any improvements to my blog, please feel free to share. Have a blessed weekend.
This leopard was on a hunt as it zoomed past our safari vehicle during one of the Masai Mara safari…It was in the early morning before sunrise. I decided to take a panning shot and what image came out was this beautiful big cat walking.
These elephants were in a fun and frolic mood at Amboseli National Park, Kenya is when I captured them in my camera.
Cheetahs are usually very alert while having their meal, unlike the lions who don’t bother about anyone around and finish off their food at one go. This picture was taken at one such moment when this cheetah was looking around if there are any threats from other cats while her siblings were masticating their meal.

Beautiful bird is called spur winged plover because it has a sharp, yellow, black-tipped spur on each wing. Shot taken at Bulago Island, lake Victoria, Uganda
This hammerkop was standing quietly on the Lake Victoria shore when it took a take off …It was in perfect sync with the water which captured my attention.
Last weekend, I had been to Bulago Island, a paradise for birds on Lake Victoria. The Egyptian geese taking a stroll as a family caught my attention. The water was calm and peaceful and it brought absolute serenity to the image.

The giraffe, a mammal native to Africa, is the world’s tallest land animal. Giraffes are herbivores who use their long, black, prickly tongues to grasp and remove leaves, flowers and fruits from tall trees and other vegetation. Several ways to identify a male giraffe from a female giraffe exist, besides referencing their reproductive organs.
Male giraffes grow up to 19 feet tall from their feet to their horns and weigh up to 4,300 pounds. Female giraffes grow up to 16 feet tall and weigh up to 2,600 pounds. Both male and female giraffes have horns. Females’ horns are thinner with dense hair, while males’ horns are thicker with hair smoothed from sparring with other males. A male may grow a second pair of horns behind the first pair.
Male giraffes are not as social as female giraffes. Males establish dominance among herds by sparring, or clashing their horns and necks against those of other male giraffes. Male giraffes are less selective than female giraffes when foraging for food; they also eat vegetation at higher elevations than females, who prefer to forage for food at or below body height.
Today’s picture I have posted reminds me of this quote. ”
“The only time you turn your back on a child is for them to hop on.”
The word bustard (from the French word bistard) has its origin in the Latin words avis tarda meaning “slow bird”.These birds have distinctive long legs and necks which enable them to see over tall grass.
