”Visiting Galapagos is a naturalist’s
delight … (March, 2007)”

Judy Underwood's fine photographs and narrative of her time in the Galapagos have inspired me.  I'm looking forward to my upcoming visit there.

I, too, went on a photo safari in Southern Africa last fall and have many fine photo souvenirs. One I’d like to share is a female leopard seen near sundown in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. We (in a Land Rover) watched from a distance of 30 feet for about three minutes. She never acknowledged our presence; we left, then a few minutes later saw her move into deep cover.
