Please note in your comment about the snake, ‘Thankfully these small snakes, although aggressive, are completely harmless to man,’ I suspect you mean completely harmless to humans. 🙂

Nice blog James. Love this week’s pictures also. Will be interesting to hear how the lion dynamics play out.

Wonderful as usual James. I noticed a few of the photographs and captions referred to dead trees. I gather they are the most popular for birds, leopards and similar animals with their lack of foliage. Are most of these trees dead because of elephants?

Hi Richard,
Yes the majority of dead trees in the area are killed by elephants.
Many birds will make use of holes in dead trees for nesting purposes, but the leopards in fact generally prefer trees with foliage, both for shade and cover. Seeing a leopard in a dead tree is dream opportunity for a photographer.
Best regards,
James
