Yea Majingilane! Also, love the bird nest and shot on the hill. Nice work!

Th Mashaba young female looks so selfconfident. No fear for anything, and convinced of her beauty. The girafe in the sunset is also a “whaw”

Beautiful as always Simon! I love the Weaver nest – it reminds me of my poor little bird that built 11 nests & the “old bag” had them all demolished, but he’s still around so I am hoping he will find a “nicer bird” & try again 🙂 Have a lovely weekend

Spectacular images Simon! I think they’re all fantastic but the silhouette photographs of the giraffe and also the lioness (congrats on getting your shot after waiting patiently for a year!) are especially beautiful. There is nothing I love more though, than to see images of the Majingilane…they are the definition of majesty, strength and beauty. I’m really happy to see that they are still doing well and look strong and healthy. Thanks for another incredible week in pictures Simon!

The storm photo_ I would be very pleased to have taken that, and it would have found its way onto the wall reserved for travel photos
(as opposed to safari photos)

HI SIMON,
IT WAS GOOD TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOU LAST WEEK. I LOOK FORWARD TO US SPENDING MORE TIME TOGETHER AT LONDO’S ON MY FUTURE VISITS.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ON THE BLOG, NOT TO MENTION THE PHOTOGRAPHS, STUNNING SHOTS OF THE MASHABA AND THE MAJINGILANE’S. MY BEST THOUGH, AND THIS MAY SURPRISE YOU, IS THE LIGHTNING STORM! GREAT SHOT BUD!
KEEP WELL, CATCH YOU SOON.
KIND REGARDS,
TED.
