Species: Chimpanzee | Location: Kibale Forest National Park, Uganda

I was on a chimpanzee walk in the Kibale Forest National Park. We found a group of animals after a difficult walk. They mostly stayed in the trees. Finally a few came down. The weather was overcast, requiring a high ISO. I just hoped that this chimpanzee stayed still until I pressed the shutter.

About The Photographer

Cropped marian pantanaal

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
