Trevor, the lighting in your photos is amazing. Love the lions and crocs, but it was really wonderful to see the Nanga and Ximpalapala females.

I agree with Marinda! Fantastic pictures this week. Each week is good, but these are great.

Interesting that the Styx Males are vocalizing! Any other updates on their escapades?

Great shots of Mhangeni male. I’m guessing he’s almost two years old? What’s the Mhangeni pride up to?

Could someone post a map of Londolozi and surrounding territories with higlighted regions for the various prides? Seems like there has been some movement recently. Has Mhangeni pride been around much?

Great pictures! What technique did you use to get the buffalo alone in the light?

The Nanga female is gorgeous.

Beautiful photos. For the ones with dark backgrounds, do you use available light, a flash, or a flashlight to compose the photo? They aren’t Photoshopped, are they?

Loved the buffalo. It is not my favorite animal, but such stunning composition. I would never tire of looking at that image.

Any chance of bringing in some other ostriches to keep the solitary one company? Or do they get eaten?

Sean – The Styx males have spent quite a bit of time in the south eastern section of Londolozi over the past couple of months. It is not official that they have taken over the area but with vocalising and scent marking it is a good start. They cross to Mala Mala often and will keep you posted over the next few weeks and months.
The mhangeni pride spend a large portion of there time in Singita and we are privileged to see them on a fairly regular basis. They cross onto Londolozi from time to time and when they do its usually only as far as the western sections of the property.
They are a force to be reckoned with as there are still 4 adult lionesses and 9 youngster around the age of two years. This winter will be an interesting time as the youngsters are growing so are there appetites.

Amy and Ed as far as the dark background photos go, I do work on them but there are a few key components. I try and over expose the image using natural light. By doing this key areas of the subject are highlighted such as the eyes, mouth, ears and horns(depending on subject) and afterwards darkening the shadows and background to emphasis the highlighted key areas.

Beautiful images Trevor! I love the two close-ups of the Piva Male and wonderful photo of the male Cheetah. Good to see the Styx males thriving and I also thought it interesting that they were vocalizing. Thanks for a great week of pictures Trevor…they’re all stunning!
