BIOGRAPHY
Thanks for visiting my galleries. Whenever possible, please try to view each image in its "LARGER" version so you can appreciate better its details, sharpness and colors. My main reason to post my work here is to inspire others by exposing the beauty and fragility of nature and wildlife. I am ultimately hoping to inspire others to join me in the quest to fight for the protection of our precious natural treasures and wildlife, in our countries and around the world. We "own" this to each of the other living creatures, we own this to our future generations, and ultimately, we own this to ourselves. I was born in the Dominican Republic, the most beautiful country in the world, a beauty that can be seen in the smile of the children and in the warmth of its people. I have been living in the US for the last 12 years, currently living in Birmingham, AL. Regards, Cesar Fernandez.

Burchell's Zebra and offspring. Etosha National Park, Namibia.

Namaqua Camaleon. Namib desert, Sept. 2005

Spotted Hyena scanning the Serengeti plains looking for potential prey. The expectation of food makes them drool copiously from their mouth, along with their behavior and general "look", gives them an unfair reputation.

Adult male lion (panthera leo). This specimen was photographed at AFRICAT rehabilitation program in Namibia, which rescue wild cats that have been injured or are sick and releases them back to their original wild habitat or another apropriate environment. This lion and another female were rescued as little orphan cubs when their mother was shot by a local farmer. Not having parents to teach them to survive in the wild, they could never be released to their natural habitat.

Adult, Male Kori Bustard in courtship display. The heaviest flying bird in the world.

Young Vervet Monkey mother with her newborn. I followed this young mother and her newborn for over an hour hoping to capture some source of interesting interaction. After birth, the first 8 to 12 hours are the most critical for mother and young since this is the time when "bonding" occurs. This is how mothers and their young learn how to recognize each other. In this picture, I managed to capture a time in which the mother paused her frantic feeding activity and glanced at her newborn. When I reviewed my images in the computer (in Bridge) it turned out that this moment actually lasted less than one second! The image before and after did not have them looking straight at each other, so the composition didn't work! THat goes to show why Nature and Wildlife photography can be so much fun and challenging. You have to work hard to get does good images. You have to get out there and get them....they do not come to you. You have to remain extremely alert and ready at all time, and ultimately, wish this is your lucky day! Any coments and critiques appreciated. Thanks, Cesar
