The favorite images I have taken during almost 20 years of safari (including 8 visits to Londolozi) are of animal faces, particularly the eyes. Thanks for this post, one of my favorites.

Brilliant perspective so close!! Great Camera work!

Wonderful study – intense images. Loved this piece!

Super photos, we haven’t heard much about the ostrich family of late?
Updates please.

Wow! Your photos move me and inspire me. The catch light in their eyes is a window to their souls. Stunning photos, beautiful prose…. question? What length lens are you using? Deep cropping? Keep up your great work.

Love your close-up shots, Nick! My preferred perspective as well. Not not only does personality show through, but the images always get “wows!”

Incredible shots Nick! Love the tight focus on the eyes!

Some epic shots here Nick!!
My best has to be the hyena!

These are all really beautiful close-up photos, Nick, but with the sad news today, it is especially beautiful seeing the closeup of the legendary Piva male. Thank you for capturing this and sharing it with us.

Love these photos! The ostrich eye–wow, who would have guessed that? Fantastic information about the leopard and how it uses its whiskers. I just got to this post, so now I look at the photo of the Piva male and am saddened to know that no more photos will be taken of him! Thank you, Nick, for your interesting post!

So difficult to get the eyes in focus like that. Amazing photos. The detail their soul is in there

Absolutely unbelievable photos!! I really love your close-up photoss of big cats, they really give a different perspective. I’m also fascintaed by the textures in their eyes (which are also some of the best for nocturnal hunting), it’s just incredible!
