I have photographed the zebras in the wild in Tsavo, Kenya. It was the first time I saw them outside a zoo. Beautiful animals.

Ich habe die Zebras in Tsavo, Kenia, fotografiert. Es war das erste Mal, dass ich Zebras in freier Wildbahn gesehen habe. Wunderschöne Tiere!

Cynomolgus Monkey (6th anniversary Getty Images edition)

Here's a remastered version of my all time favourite photo. It was recently picked for the Getty Images Flickr Collection and I had to do a "creative upsize" to make the resolution big enough for acceptance. While no replacement for the original (long lost) full-resolution image, it looks and prints much better.

Learn more about the Batu Caves:
Batu Caves is a limestone hill, which has a series of caves and cave temples, located in Gombak district, 13 km north of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It takes its name from the Sungai Batu or Batu River, which flows past the hill. Batu Caves is also the name of the nearby village.

The cave is one of the most popular Hindu shrines outside India, dedicated to Lord Muruga. It is the focal point of the annual Thaipusam festival in Malaysia and attracts over more than 1.5 million pilgrims, making it one of the largest gatherings in history.

There are various undeveloped caves which contain a diverse range of cave fauna, including some unique species, such as Liphistiidae spiders and Eonycteris fruit bats. The site is also well known for its numerous macaque monkeys, which visitors feed — sometimes involuntarily.

“To them, their fingers are eyes”

From 1913, John Alfred Charlton Deas, a former curator at Sunderland Museum, organised several handling sessions for the blind, first offering an invitation to the children from the Sunderland Council Blind School, to handle a few of the collections at Sunderland Museum, which was ‘eagerly accepted’.
