Awesome pics. Amazing pics of the cheetah cub. Mashaba young female is just as beautiful as her mother.

TGIF -another week in pictures! The morning light is beautiful. I bet there is a bit of a chill to get everyone going for the drive. Thanks much for photos of Vomba Young Male, Mashaba Young Female and Tamboti Young Female. The future leopards of Londo are looking good. Always love the rare Maliliwane female photo. There looks like maybe some tufts of fur on her lower left belly. Could those be suckle marks? The cheetah cubs are too cute for words.

Seeing Life reminds me of the time we spent together March 2013. He has the best stories that I still tell my grandkids. Of course it is wonderful to see the young Mashaba female growing up. And of course, the baby rhino–my favorite. Thanks for a wonderful week. See you all in September.

Im ure there would have been alot of emotions if you had seen the little rhino calf Arden! Life is still well and telling stories as he always does!!

Thank you Mike, the pictures are fantastic as always. I’m looking forward to the story on the cheetah family. Is the Sparta male sick or just needing some food? Have a lovely weekend & now I wait for the next WIP’s or something exciting in between 🙂

Hi Wendy, thank you for comments! The Sparta young male was definitely a little thin in this image, but I love it as it shows the strugglers of every day life! Since this picture was taken, the Sparta pride has killed a large male Kudu, a buffalo and are now busy trailing another buffalo herd!

The poor male Sparta boy is too skinny . He can do some good feeding like now for a long time in order to exist

I love watching the sun rise and all the beautiful colours and sounds of the bush that come with an early morning game drive. Beautiful photographs Mike, I especially love the Cheetah cub….so sweet. Thanks for sharing!

The Rhino calf photo does show the advantage of getting as low down as possible for the photo. I suspect that was taken from the passenger seat next to the driver.

The perspective is great from low down. To get this shot I held my camera in my foot well and used Live View on the camera to get the angle and composition correct!

Amazing photos as usual Mike! Love the fine hair on the neck of cheetah cubs.

I know sightings are great in the winter but I am really miserable when cold so have to visit in the summer. Then I could stay for months1

Had no idea this is what was uploaded. Definitely not one of my favorites. Thanks for the kind words.

I loved getting out into the crisp morning air and feeling it slowly warm with the rising of the sun.. Thank you for the pictures.. I hope that Sparta boy found himself a meal!
