There are some real crackers in this edition, the Masahaba female yawning as well as the cheetah photos and the hyena cub. It is one of the things that makes Londolozi special is the way the rangers and trackers have a culture of photography as well as a deep understanding of the fauna on Londolozi . I think Alex is due some serious praise for these photos.

Fabulous images this week Alex. Always appreciate your settings. Love the roller in flight – don’t see that often. Can’t choose a favorite. They’re all special.

Just finalized plans for my African trip in November and thrilled to say I’ll be at Londolozi for 3 nights beginning November 22 – it will be a happy thanksgiving!!

Alex this is a phenomenal set of pictures for your TWIP. Well done and keep up the great photography! The tamboti female in the tree is particularly stunning

There aren’t enough superlatives to praise you Alex for your excellent descriptive writing to the stunning variety of images of Londolozi animals! I’m glad the Mashaba (my favorite leopard along with her now independent female off-spring), continues to hide her Cubs. They need all the protection they can get considering past tragedies. The images of the young Ellie’s stole my heart.

Yes, there is no week-end or off day in the ever busy bush and for that, and this blog, I am very grateful. My thanks!

Really great photos this week. Love the lilac breasted roller and yellow billed storks. Clear detailed pictures. This week in pictures put a big smile on my face

The Inyathini male looks like his incisor bottom left has a lot of wear and tear
Could be a cause of concern perhaps?
