Stunning capture of the martial eagle Bruce. Love the giant land snail and wild dogs. Great to hear the white storks are back. Going in to the bush in two weeks. Can’t wait to see them.

Thank you very much Marinda! Glad that you appreciate the land snail! Enjoy being in the bush in the next two weeks.

Wonderful photos and such interesting details! I learned something new- that the juvenile red-billed oxpecker does not have the yellow eye-ring yet. Love the details. Thanks, Bruce!

Thanks, Bruce. Some really wonderful photos this week.

Thank you very much for the comment Dave!

I love the image of the duiker lamb. It reminds me of the time I saw a lamb of a Thomson’s gazelle also stil wet and lying flat. I could take some real nice pictures without disturbing it. I saw the same lamb the next day walking with its mother. I wil never forget that.

Gorgeous shots Bruce – I particularly love the martial eagle. Incredible. Please can I ask which lens you used? Thanks!

Bruce Arnott

Thank you Nicki, the martial eagle shot seems to be the winner this week! I used a fixed 400mm F5.6.

Another incredible WIP!!! Particularly loved that portrait of the cheetah and how that elephant stands out among the legs of his elders! Also fantastic luck to have found that baby duiker!

Wonderful blog describing the week’s sightings followed by magnificent wildlife portraits, Bruce! Does Torchwood’s territory now include some of Londolozi ‘s property?

Bruce Arnott
Field Guide

Hi Mary, thank you for the wonderful feedback on the stories and photographs! The Torchwood male is being seen more regularly on Londolozi; he could be expanding his territory further into the south western parts of Londolozi. Let us hope continues moving further into Londolozi!

Wonderful photos this week. Highlights for me were the two portraits of the Zebra and Kudu moms and youngsters. The little Duiker was awfully sweet. I noticed on the Kudu image the shutter speed was really high – your reason for this? I’m always looking for ways to learn.

Looks like it was a great viewing week – good for you and guests. Cheers to a wonderful weekend.

Bruce Arnott
Field Guide

Hi Denise, thank you very much for your comments! I’m glad you like those two shots. I ramped up my shutter speed because they were moving quickly up the termite mound and I wanted to be ready with a fast shutter speed to capture them at the top of the mound before they ran down.

Bruce, We are blown away by this WIP, especially the Martial Eagle. We love to see them fly too! Thanks for the update!

Michael and Terri thank you for the wonderful feedback; ‘blown away’ is no small compliment!

It is so good to open TWIP which inevitably causes a smile, gasp (of envy!) and appreciation of superb photos, diary of weekly experiences, sightings and always a thought provoking blog. Thank you.
