The Sunday Naturalist

After a lengthy winter vacation, your Sunday Naturalist is back…but rather than my own photo essay to kick off the new year, instead I’d like to share with you some lovely photographs taken by my mother and father who are currently adventuring in Africa!

It has been a long-time dream of theirs to visit and witness the great game migrations on the Serengeti, and this year–the first year of my father’s official retirement (surprise, he’s a scientist!)–they were able to make this dream come to life.

This collection of their photos comes mainly from the Ngorongoro crater in Tanzania as well as the central Serengeti. I’ve done a little bit of editing to the original images (a straighten here, a bit of color saturation there, a little cropping, etc.). In any event, I hope you enjoy this brief glimpse of Tanzania, Africa in January.
