Spontaneous Moments

A game drive is a collection of spontaneous moments, some better than others, and some completely unforgettable.  I thought I'd give the National Geographic Travel Photo Contest a shot this year, and Poised for Success is my entry.  Click the image below to read a little more about where and how this incredible event unfolded, and then click "Like" to show your support!

For more visual inspiration, you can now follow NatGeoTravel on Tumblr. Check out more of my photographs on Flickr or purchase prints on RedBubble.  Think you have a winning shot? Enter the contest before it closes on June 30th (Good luck!)
