Stunning images Bruce. Love the comb duck and the hippo on the causeway. So special to see the Ximunge female’s cubs.

Greay compilation Bruce!
Particularly liked the eye-to-eye contact with the Tamboti Young Female.

A wonderful array of animals, with excellent compositions, that were both eye catching and thoughtfully shot. A photographer’s eye can be developed, but there is a greater instinctive understanding at what he/she is looking at on a deeper level than just the animal itself. I enjoyed your dialogue as well. Thanks!

What terrific shots, Bruce! I loved your thoughtfulness in composing them. The lion in the bush, the hippo returning to the water, the leopard’s paws, the rhino giving you the eye, the Comb duck, all are great shots. Thanks for sharing!

Bruce, we had a magical 4 days with you and Robert!! We saw so many animals and birds, but we did love the leopard resting his chin on the branch. Hope the new male does not find hom! Thanks for all the sightings and the great pictures. Victoria

Hi Bruce Yes some us do know how elusive the Anderson male can be. Some great photos

Seems you had a fabulous week of photos……like you, I take the occasional abstract wildlife image, such as your leopard’s paws/legs. You were lucky to capture a glimpse of one of the Ximungwe cubs, close enough to take a photo- I barely saw them in November whilst tucked in their rock cave. Your rhino image was especially beautiful- such a unique angle.
Looking forward to more photos……

Wow! Stunning shots, Bruce, especially the Knob-billed duck, the legs of the leopard, the Oxpecker landing on the Rhino, the impala in front of the giraffe, and then the timeless look of the Taboti young female. Such imagination, such execution. My hat’s off!

Hi Bruce. Some really lovely pics. The one of the Comb Duck (Knob-billed Duck) displaying is super! I have never seen this before. Magnificent and beautiful wings! Also loved the intense stare of the Young Tamboti Female…. Also enjoyed the frontal view of the stubborn Zebra in the road! Thank you so much, Bruce! Wendy M

Wonderful photos, Bruce. I especially loved the one of the Tamboti young female. I saw her with her mother in Oct ’17 when she was about 6 months old, so she would be approaching 2 years now? I heard she had been seen after her mother died, but it’s great news to hear she’s still around. Did she look well?

Thank you Bruce for these beautiful images you’ve shared with us. I love the last one of the lioness with cubs giving you the hairy eyeball ❤️❤️ Enjoy your evening & Sunday

I’m so glad to hear of the Tamboti Young female! Just last night I mentioned her to my husband and wondered of her fate as we hadn’t heard anything recently. We saw her in April, not long before her mother died, so I have been secretly rooting for her.

Excellent collection of photos, Bruce

The Ntsevu lioness and the giant kingfisher have to be my favourites here, though the one of the leopardesses paws offers a different angle!
