After coming back to South Africa I was given the opportunity to photograph some beautiful wildlife. These are some of the images that I captured on our adventures into the bush. I never photographed wildlife before and found it to be very exciting, it put me in touch with nature in a whole new way. I was not equiped with a huge lens, I did my best with a canon 70 – 300mm which was a big challenge for me. A lot of my images were spotted from a distance so I had to be quick to capture so to not loose the moment.
“How can we possibly appreciate and move toward spiritual wholeness if we cannot see beyond our own species? How can we come to know God, or grasp the interconnectedness of all life, if we limit ourselves to knowing only our own kind? The goal of compassion is not to care because someone is like us but to care because they are themselves. Any spiritual discipline, in any tradition, invites us to open our hearts and minds. This invitation represents an ongoing exercise; the desire and attempt to be open to others in our midst are the essence of the spiritual process. Animals can lead us spiritually in a variety of ways. They can teach us about death, participate in our social and moral development, enhance our physical and psychological well-being, and heighten our capacity to love and to experience joy.” – Mary Lou Randour
