Really great range of photographs, the bush is clearly starting to turn green at a rate of knots!! My utmost favourite photo has to be the giraffe in post-drinking mode, the backlighting is amazing!! Also love the Tsalala pride, the red-billed oxpecker and the Flat Rock male mating with the Mashaba Young Female. To see three adult leopards at the same time is nothing short of a miracle, can’t wait to see the upcoming footage of the trio!!

The pictures are always wonderful and this week I especially like the Buffalo Bull. Love his expression and it’s just an awesome photo.

Hi Lucie, Thanks so much. Old Buffalo bulls often have great texture their horns and such character which makes them great subjects to photograph.

James, I find TWIP to be really fascinating, especially the giraffe shaking off the water. I hadn’t noticed that before so thank you for sharing. Leopard pics are always welcome and the backstory of the two females mating with the same makmle is intriguing. Guess the females decided not to fight over him 😊.

I spent a few days in Phinda in 2007, Rock Lodge. It was magical. We saw so many lions quite up close and personal and had a family of impala under my pool deck. Loved watching them in the afternoon.

Also thank you for the camera settings. There very good as a teaching tool.

Hi Denise, I am glad the settings are useful and that you enjoy reading TWIP each week.

Wow James what a surprise to see the 3 leopards together, just shows that nature can also be “patient & understanding” I just hope all the cubs live to grow big & strong!! Your pictures are stunning & to see green grass again is wonderful! We have had 48mm of rain so far this weekend in Alberton, so a very happy me 🙂 Enjoy your evening drive & Sunday

Hi Wendy, thanks for the comments. It was an incredible sighting. The bush is indeed looking very green and we still hoping for lots more rain to come. Hope you are well.

Hi James, How many members are in the Tsalala Breakaway Pride? Have you seen anymore efforts of rejoining their main pride? I was so glad to see Tambotis’s cub. I worry for them. When do you all feel it is time to name them? Thank you for the great pictures. I save many of the pictures you all post so I can remember what each leopard and lion pride looks like. I live vicariously through all of you guys and gals.
