Hi Dr. Karnik,
I enjoyed visiting with you today about Ischemic Heart Disease and so enjoyed hearing about your adventures in Africa and India. These pictures are amazing and make you feel like you are right there in the moment.
After hearing about your elephant encounter I wondered if you have read The Elephant Whisperer by Lawrence Anthony? It is a great book about his life with the herd in the African Wild. I think you would enjoy it. Lawrence Anthony was a legand in South Africa and bravely rescued wildlife and rehabilitated elephants all over the globe from human atrocities.
Thank you for sharing this site and your wonderful photography.
I really enjoyed the pictures you posted and hope to see more… beautiful treat for the eyes…
Thought of sharing something I remembered that you may appreciate… there was a gentleman by the name of Norman Carr whom I had the opportunity to meet when I was little. A very impressive man who is a legend in the world of safaris. Interestingly he raised a couple cubs and with his tender care, nursed them, eventually teaching them how to fend for themselves. If my memory serves me right, he is the man who originally named a lion Simba…years before the movie “The Lion King” was made. I remember reading a book that he autographed for me so long ago back in the 1980′s that talked about a good variety of the wildlife and his life with the lions/cubs. The book and later the movie “Return to the Wild” was inspired by his adventures. Here is a link to a site that may be of interest to you… http://www.normancarrsafaris.com/#!/about/norman-carr
I don’t know if I told you but I have been to Luangwa Valley and it’s definitely a place I think you would love to visit and a place you can get up, close and personal with the wildlife! Like your encounters with the elephant stampede and leopard charging wasn’t enough…right?!
Thank you for the wonderful comments. FYI… the word “simba” actually means lion in Swahili. It’s a little bit like naming a dog “Dog.” But it works if you don’t speak Swahili.
Really enjoyed meeting you today. Wonderful photos if you are one half as good of a Dr. as you are as a photographer you are fantastic.
My wife’s camera is a Nikon D-810
