Dust looms and radiant skies remind us that winter has settled in. Animals are forced to water that somehow stays above the parched land. Paths form patterns that cut through the bush like veins across the land. After the winter solstice we are on the slow road back to summer… With spectacular sightings like the ones we’ve seen below, there’s no need to wish away the time.
Enjoy the week in pictures!
What stirs in you when you look into the eyes of a big male lion?

Beautiful pics. Love the one of the Hip scar Majingilane
Wonderful week. Thank you. Hip scar makes me happy that I will be able to visit him in 3 more months. Can’t wait to be back in the bush.
Thank you Simon, for another amazing week in pictures.. Hip Scar’s picture is indeed beautiful.
I love the Impala Lily and the leopards and the buff with the green splash of color.. Oh heck, I love them all.. An amazing place you live in.. Paradise by my standards.
I think Hip Scar takes the prize tonight, but they are all beautiful Simon thank you. Have a good weekend in your paradise
Beautiful photos Simon! The Majingilane is my favourite though. They are so regal and amazing to watch and when you are lucky enough to make eye contact, I always wonder what they are thinking. Just an incredible experience.
Great use of black and white photography, my favourite is the young impala, you may see hundreds of impala but getting a good photo of them is incredibly difficult.
Beautiful photos Simon!! The black and white lion is amazing!! Were these taken with the 300mm fixed lens you were using? You’ve Inspired Gary and I.
