Wouldn’t mind chatting over e-mail if you had the chance, James. I just finished a semester at New York Film Academy and I’d love to pick your brain about settings in the bush. Let me know if you have the time!

Exquisite photos James, especially like the black and white with the cub in the tree, but can’t stop admiring the Narina Trogan shot, the colours are stunning – all winners Hope your computer problems are short-lived.

This inspired me to look back through my pics from Londolozi and more S.A. in 2011. The black and white picture above of the Piva female’s cub, and how it is camouflaged in the bark of the tree, got me to thinking…how many animals are hidden in a picture. It’s a game, and one as children we all played…spot the hidden item. So, I found many pictures of animals hidden in underbrush(rhinos peeking out from huge thorns!), grass, trees. Mine are actually all in color…BUT if animals only see in shades of black, white and grey, how much more interesting the game becomes! If animals don’t see colors…why are birds so flamboyant? If they only see black and white, then the ‘follow me’ signs on the back of the cats’ ears are really quite visible. SO, how many colors do these animals see?

Where’s Camp Pan Male? It has been a while since we’ve heard of him?

Hi Vin,

He is still around! As far as I know, the last time he was seen was with the Tamboti female and her cubs on a kill, a phenomenal sighting! THis makes us think that he is indeed the father of these cubs which is great news, becaus as he moves on in age his reign may be coming to an end.

Kindest regards,
Kate

James, I know that I am repeating myself, but you have once again made my day with your “old” pictures. I could list the favourites, it would be all, but the Leopard tail, Cub in the tree & Narina Trogan come out tops. So thanks a ton and I now look forward to the “next exciting episode”!
Enjoy your weekend
Kind regards

Love the action shot of Tugwaan male. You get a sense of his power and the chaos and noise of a kill. Nice shots.

Love the leopard cub tail. I have a similar one that I took which is one of my favorites of my photos. Thanks again for a great post.

hello James,
Thanks for this feast of images…enjoyed them especially the story of two leopards, two kills and one sighting. hope the Piva cub is found soon- it looks so beautifully blended with the texture of the tree trunk. Wish I could see the Trogon in Londoz.
The website is my father in law’s images…you might find some of your leopards in it.
Best,
Shveta
