Some stand outs, the rhino, never mind the cliche that is a good photo. The Eagle Owl though has to be my favourite.
I do have a glove rental business if anybody is interested?

Wow! Great photos! Just outstanding! And, yet, what am I thinking about now? How smart those caterpillars are—? it truly is amazing that they thought of that to deter any problems. I appreciate your ‘stomach crawl’ to take the photograph! Gloves are essential this time of year, even if you toss them off to take a shot for a few minutes. ‘Be prepared’ is a good motto to follow. Thanks for yet another entertaining post, James!

congratulations for both James’s great pictures

Great photos and blog. Love the Anderson male!!! The shot of the rhino is exquisite!

Stunning pic of the Mhangene lioness crossing Finfoot. Great to see an afrucan wildcat.

Wow-what a compilation of photos this week. I found the information referencing the caterpillars quite educational and I always appreciate learning something new.
Leopard images are always loved but your rhino close up us charming- you captured its good side!? enjoy your weekend.

January is way too far away!! Love the caterpillar parade! Please say hello to Alfie and Terrence. Victoria

I love the photos. Quite a study of illusions!

Really interesting TWIP! Great fuzzy caterpillar shot but the cheetahs are favorites for me! The Anderson male is amazing looking – his pale face emphasizes his dark-rimmed eyes, mesmerizing!

Loved the images this week. I grinned at the caterpillar shot and loved the rationale behind their long line. The last thing I’d think about is caterpillars in Africa! Good going, James!

Such an incredible range of special and unique photos, it’s really hard to pick a favourite!! I love the photo of the Mhangeni lionesses, the white rhino, the Anderson Male, and the Verreaux’s eagle owl! Nice work on finding the wild cat, apparently they are seen with some regularity in the Kgalagadi (especially in the winter).

I saw the python photo on instagram and I was wondering if it could have been moulting, so thanks for the clarification there!

James, Thanks for the update and congrats to all who contributed to the diverse and amazing shots!

I thought your owl photo was stunning so didn’t understand the write up- Out of frame and detracts. I disagree, it’s a marvelous photo

Glad to see the Nhlanguleni cub. Reminds me of our sighting (or should I say brief glimpse) of her previous cubs almost 2 years ago to the day.
