The injured eye can already be seen in the original photo on July 17. Anderson will see well. ♥

Hi Iren,
Apologies, I didn’t see your original comment on the July 17th post. It will be interesting to see too what extent the injury heals…

Great sighting of the Cape Vulture. Love the Nkoveni and Mashaba female pics.

Another wonderful week in pictures. Thank you. Glad to see the Anderson male still has his eye

Great set of photos James Great news about the Anderson

Thanks Mike,
Let’s hope he recovers well!

I have enjoyed all of the news I receive daily, but was really struck by the pic of the giraffe eating a bone! Wow

Great pictures. Happy about Anderson, didn`t expect it by seeing him in July.

Hi James,great blog as usual.
I’m looking forward to the blog concerning the Anderson male,but he looks to be in great shape even with only one eye.You mentioned in the blog that he is steadily encroaching south of the river,that puts Mashaba and Nkoveni’s litters in danger because the Flat Rock male is fighting a losing battle against the Anderson male,he won’t be able to protect them.Have you sexed the cubs of the Nhlanguleni female?

Hi Alexander,
At first glance it looks like one female and one male, but I’ve only seen them twice and didn’t get a good look. It may well be two females.

One of the best week of photo’s ever, James! Such diversity … so good! I’ll have to look and re-read again later. Only time will tell if the eye and vision was severely damaged. One can only hope for the best, but that was a severe and traumatic injury to recover from. Again thanks James, you’re the best!

Your photo journal and commentary are always greatly appreciated. You have allowed me to become a part of the animal kingdom and for that I thank you.

Hi Stan,
Thanks very much for the kind words!
Best regards

Such an incredible range of photographs!! The shot of the Mashaba Female has to be my favourite though!

Thanks Callum,
The light was particularly good in that Mashaba female sighting!

Pleasure James! It certain;y looks like it was a special encounter!

And nice work spotting that Cape vulture!!

Brilliant stuff! As the days shorten here in Ireland its magical to look at these pics and forget the impending arrival of winter. Please keep up the fantastic work

James, what a great set of diverse images! Of course our favorite is of our favorite leopard – the most beautiful Mashaba! Thanks!
