The only thing better than having a lioness
twenty minutes or more
photographing her six week old cubs.
There were two….but the other was a male!
Black and White Challenge:
South Africa again…
for my Kudu…
and Lion images.
This shot gave me goose bumps as the lioness was
only about 15 feet from me and she seemed to look
straight down my lens.
A night or two later and her cubs put on a show
for us on our last evening at
Sausage Tree Safari Camp.
Our football season is over for 2016…
however fans and players all enjoy a good game of football.
Busking…for the young at heart.
While half a world away these impalas…
certainly enjoyed themselves in Kruger National Park.
My contribution for this week’s
Now some of my favourite eyes….
The gentle giant which we are trying our best to exterminate.
Six week old lion cub.
The lion cub’s mother.
Sadly she died about twelve months after this shot was taken.
She was only about fifteen feet from our vehicle and
when she turned and look at me/camera/vehicle…
there was definitely goose bumps all over me.
African Lilac Breasted Roller
is my pastel subject this week.
When I first sighted the Roller it was just another bird
against a hot sunny South African sky.
did not allow my eyes to see the colours.
It was not until I arrived home and saw the photos
on my computer that I appreciated its colours.
Although at nearly ground level and only 30-40 metres away,
the colours of this Roller were much easier to see
when sighted in Botswana’s Okavango Delta region
the following year.
