I have so many photos from my Tanzanian safari to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire National Parks that I don’t even know how to begin sharing them! I wasn’t sure how the safari would compare with the one I did in Uganda last year (It was my first safari and it blew my mind!), and I was worried this one wasn’t going to live up to my expectations. I needn’t have been concerned... the whole trip was better than I could have imagined. On the first day we took bets on how many lions we would see over the 4 days... I bet 3 (ever the pessimist) and we ended up seeing 58!! Yep you read that correctly, 58 lions! 🦁
We saw cubs, lionesses hunting, adolescence males, fully grown males! The whole shebang! 🦁
We also saw all of the big five (Lions, Leopards, Rhinos, Elephants, and Buffalo), though I have to admit the Black Rhino we saw in Ngorongoro Crater was laying down in the far distance.
So to do the trip justice, i’ve decided to share the best wildlife photos of each national park separately, so you can see and compare the different landscapes and animals of the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Tarangire NPs. I will also be writing blog posts reviewing the tour company we used, and giving tips on what to pack for a safari- so keep your eyes peeled! 👀 📸 @angelotisod 📍Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
It was one of those trips that you just need some time to process. One not necessarily “fun” or the “relaxation” most come to think of vacations.I’m just starting to look back on it and appreciate the bullshit and adversity that so often accompanies an out of state DIY hunting trip. This years Ohio trip was frustratingly taxing on the mental psyche. Getting dropped off before daylight and picked up after dark on a piece of property, is paradise for me. Thoughts of 12 hour tree-stand sits get me through the boring days of summer. We wait all year and drive 9 hours for the annual Ohio trip. To arrive this year and watch farmers,quads and cattle running circles around my planned treestand setups...frustrating to say the least. Being mobile with a stand on my back allowed the flexible adaptability necessary to get it done under constant, unplanned and random circumstances that changed hourly. I really planned on eating my Ohio tag this year and having nothing to show for my efforts other than the typical failed hunter sunset pics.This brute of a 4.5 year old Ohio troll buck compliments a blood toned, soy field sunset nicely. I love me a mature buck with some character. He’s all broken up and barrel chested. He’s perfect. Another successful year and lessons learned. It’s never as expected. But always appreciated. I love #bowhunting#whitetail#deer#ohio#whitetaildeer#sunset#hunttoeat#wildlife#nature#persistence#hunter
Why do cheetahs have black "tear marks" that run down the inside corners of their eyes? These tear marks are very helpful when cheetahs hunt for two reasons. They help reflect the sun during daytime hunting. This is similar to the black marks that football players put under their eyes during a game. These lines also act like sights on a rifle and help the cheetahs aim when they are running at top speeds after their prey. #didyouknow#cheetah#animalfacts#wildlife

Wildlife watching at dusk in Yellowstone National Park. Seeing animals living in their natural habitat is wonderfully addicting. I enjoy spending the day in one location waiting to see what’s going to pop out. Every look through the lens or binoculars is like unwrapping a present. Will you see an animal? Which one will you find? What will they be doing? If you’ve haven’t tried it I highly recommend it. I photographed all of these animals between Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Park. Which one is your favorite? I love the last one.
1. Hayden Valley spotters at dusk.
2. This coyote was hunting and playing for over an hour.
3. That Bison was with the herd in the distance 5 min earlier.
4. Bison in Yellowstone crossing river.
5. Pronghorn relaxing after grazing.
6. Bald eagle eyeing his next meal.
7. Moose in the Tetons
8. Hero of the ecosystem. See for yourself 🙂
The bottom of elephants’ feet is made up of tough and fatty tissue that acts a shock absorber so that elephants can walk more quietly.🐘

This playful little rhino is an orphan called Nandi. Her mother was killed by poachers, and now she is cared for at @therhinoorphanage with the hope that one day she may be re-released back into the wild. Thanks to orphanages like these, animals such as Nandi will get a second chance at life after such a harsh beginning.

Here is something you don’t see every day: A baldeagle and a red fox fighting over a rabbit — and at times more than 20 feet up into the air!🦅🦊
It happened at San Juan Island National Historical Park. The fox caught the rabbit and the eagle tried to steal it away. See the whole sequence of images by swiping right!
The whole battle lasted just eight seconds. The fox ended up OK, but lost its dinner.
