Disney Wild Africa Trek

For some of us, wildlife photography just means a trip to the zoo. It’s understandable. Not everyone can wade into the woods or head off to Africa on a photo safari. We make the most of what’s feasible. I had a chance last weekend to do just that at the Disney Wild Africa Trek in […]
