One good tern deserves another.
Savoche's current approach to wildlife photography has merits: perfect weather, no danger,no dust, no misty rain, controlled lighting, whatever wildlife you want right where you want it, never turning their backs, recliner and refrigerator handy.

An elk, just to go off of birds for a moment. The antlers get a bit lost in the background clutter.

I get the message, you've been to Africa . 2 Giraffes and a Baobab. Works for me!
We do have some other species as well, but their sizes don't match. The lion is a bit too big compared to the giraffes, while the guinea fowl is more the size of an ostrich. Not to mention a dung beetle large enough to roll the baobab away, and dragon flies that could easily bite the head off the giraffes... Send in the giant spider and scorpion and I'll be all set to make a stop motion horror film

True. And yet I prefer the traditional way with all its unpredictabilities and lack of comfort. All for the excitement, I suppose
