Stunning pics Paul. Love the leopards and the rhino.

As Marinda says, some stunning photos, the wall candy for me are the pictures of Tatowa female and cub , as well the Birmingham male shot, either of those would happily adorn my walls.

Thank you Ian!

Great stuff Paul. My Friday routine is to come to my office. Open my email and go directly to the Londolozi Blog to see The Week in Pictures. As always I was not disappointed. Thanks for your contribution.

Thank you Andrew and Daniel! I love contributing to TWIP as it’s a great way of sharing the magic that is Londolozi Game Reserve.

Great images and I really like the inclusion of the metadata. Might I suggest the inclusion of which camera was used as well. Thans.

Hi Jeff. I used a Canon 7d Mark II on a 70-200mm F2.8 lens. It’s been my trusty companion my whole guiding career. Thank you for commenting.

Great pix. I loved tired mama leopard, and i thought there was a bird coming out of the rhino’s ear. Great illusion!

Yes it is. Thank you Michael. I didn’t notice it until i looked at the photo later on a big screen.

You started off the blog today with a bang! The image of the male from the Birmingham coalition is so strikingPaul! that it needs to be on canvas and hung for viewing. The leopard captures rare excellent as well. Wonderful week at Londolozi for staff and guests alike! Thank you

Thank you Joanne! It’s always good to have an idea of what sort of photograph you want to take and then looking for the right opportunity. That certainly helped me take those two photos. Thank you for commenting.

When I saw the first photo, I immediately thought this lion will be my favorite….but then came others. Thanks for this selection of beauty of different species in the area.

Thank you very much for your kind comment Lucie!

Thank you Callum!

Lyanne Millhouse

Absolutely amazing pictures! We all appreciated how close you must have been. The children really liked the close up of the Rhino and had great fun trying to imagine all his battles! Please know, that they’re sharing all your photos with their friends 🙂

Hi Lyanne. We’re really fortunate to have such great game viewing here at Londolozi. Rhino are can be surprisingly difficult subjects to photograph despite their size. Thank you for commenting and to the children for sharing!
