For those who have explored Africa’s natural history, the location known as the Okavango Delta has likely surfaced. It is a region in northern Botswana infiltrated by water from the highlands of Angola to the northwest. This water, in an otherwise dry landscape, creates a mecca for wildlife, and an infusion of green and color to the region. Unlike rivers that eventually work their way to the sea, or join another river, this water gets spread out in a fan and absorbed by the landscape. It has been a destination on my hit list for a long time and I spent some time in the Moremi Wildlife Reserve, located in Moremi National Park. This aerial photo represents a classic look of the region from the air, as the water floods the landscape creating interesting patterns and greenery. Elephants, giraffes, lions, and many other wildlife species roam the area. Note the small boat on the left side of the frame, which is a popular way to access the waterways on daily outings. The picture was taken during mid day light, not an ideal time for aerial photography, but shooting through the glass windows of a plane can sometimes render o.k. results. The high shutter speed of 1/2500 is helpful in getting sharp images.
