Davidson's Safari Camp is an old favaourite of mine, rich in rock art and wildlife. This photo essay was taken during the 2018 Grand Outback Photo Tour. All images were taken with the Lumix G9 except for a couple of drone shots. Enjoy.

Wildlife images here were taken with a Lumix G9 and the Leica 100-400mm f/4-6.3 lens. I believe this rig is an exceptionally powerful tool for chasing bird photos. It's light and powerful with an amazing autofocus system and generous viewfinder. I typically run this around 15fps but it can do 60fps shooting RAW if that floats your boat.

"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
