Some absolute crackers, the leopard over water, the hunting dog in black and white and of course the big tusker.

1. Love the Nanja female leopard, of course….she is always my favorite!
2. The bull elephant in the sunset
3. The straigh-on face shot of the wild dog is striking
4. The sub-adult lions romping in the river, especially the one with the female in the picture
5. the hyena pups
6. I like the night photo of the lions….nice

Beautiful images James! I especially love the close up of the Wild Dog. Is it rare for a Giraffe to have her calf killed? I would have thought they were too large and protective for lions to attempt to kill. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photographs.

Great photos! I really like the elephant bull and the Tsalala’s and the leopards. After reading the comments, I looked again at the Sparta lioness. Is she pregnant or is it just the angle of her belly in the photo?

Thanks for the comment everyone.

Sadly I do not believe the Sparta lioness is pregnant. I think it is just the angle of her body that gives the illusion of a protruding belly.
As far as I can tell, although it’s a bit trickier in the dark, the picture appears to be of the young lioness (approx. 3 yrs old) and she is probably still a little too young to conceive.
