Over summer I volunteered at a game reserve in South Africa. Seeing animals in the wild and well-cared for in rehabilitation centres and sanctuaries was everything I hoped it would be. I took my Canon DSLR 1200D, mostly using my telephoto lens, and tried my best to do the majestic, beautiful animals justice.
