Excellent post Bruce! You captured some great shots!

Thanks Dan! Looking forward to your return next year!

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous. We just returned to NY from Londolozi and cannot wait to return.

Thank you Leslie, and glad to hear you had a good time at Londolozi! We await your return!

Oh these pictures are stunning Bruce! Thank you. I just love how leopards find these “comfortable” branches that to us would most likely be totally “uncomfortable”! Have a great weekend 🙂

Bruce Arnott
Field Guide

Wendy thanks for your your feedback! I agree, leopards seem find the most comfortable positions on branches; it makes one realize how at home they are in trees! Have a wonderful weekend to you too.

Stunning photos again this week. Sounds like the change in weather scores bug for the predators, not so well for the prey but such is the circle of life. Thank you for including the camera settings.

Denise thank you very much! Very true, although sad for the prey, it is also important to appreciate the circle of life! There are days where the predators struggle more than the prey, and vice versa. Have a great week!

Great pictures, Bruce! You had some awesome sightings this week!

Thanks Ilene! We also had some incredible sightings during your stay; looking forward to your and Matt’s return!

Great photos. I particularly like the image of the baby Hyena being carried by its Mom. Thanks to ‘The Lion King,’ Hyenas are very under-loved. They are one of my favorites.

Bruce Arnott
Field Guide

Hi Jeff, thank you very much. I agree, hyenas seem to be under-loved until one realizes their incredible ability, important role in the ecosystem and the fact that they are second only to the lion in the predator hierarchy!

Great pics this week Bruce. Love the Mashaba young female on the branch. Awesome sighting of the three different bird species.

Bruce Arnott
Field Guide

Hi Marinda, thank you for your positive feedback! It was unusual and unique seeing the different bird species together and wonderful seeing the mashaba young female on that branch; the weather helped the background in the photograph because it was overcast that day!

Beautiful pictures. My favourite is the young hyena grinning.

Bruce Arnott
Field Guide

Thank you A B! Hyenas famously provide us with entertainment out here in the bush; they seem to show more emotion than most species!

Al Kaiser
Senior Digital Ranger

Love the photos of the mashaba young female. I haven’t seen her in over 12 months.

Bruce Arnott

Thanks Al, it was an epic scene. Looking forward to your return in December. Keep well!

fantastic pictures. It is amazing to be in the bush with your blog and sitting in my place in France. Wish i could jump in a plane and come right away. Thanks a lot.

Bruce Arnott
Field Guide

Thank you Agnes, I am glad that the blog provides you with a taste of the Londolozi wilderness no matter where you are in the world. We have no objection to you hopping on that plane!

Susan Strauss
Senior Digital Ranger

Beautiful shots; I especially love Mashaba’s cub as well as the young Mashaba female in the tree.
