James, if that wasn’t the BEST panning shot of impalas you have ever taken, I would sure like to see a better one! Hat’s off once again.

James, Really enjoyed this weeks pictures. All the new life and quantity of prey must make for amazing game drives. It would seem the Leopards of Londolozi have a veritable buffet this time of year.

I found the TT information to be fascinating. I had wondered if the trackers and guides spent regular time in the bush studying with experts as us novices find some of the track identification to be daunting. Finding tracks and then the matching animal is always thrilling.
On another note, the photo of the Ximungwe female with her cub, alludEd to the possibility of a missing cub. Perhaps I was reading more into the photo but it looked like another grouping of spots in the vegetation left of the visible cub…. are my eyes deceiving me?!

Hi Denise,
No you you are 100% correct. I wasn’t too clear in that caption; the cub has gone missing since that photo was taken. But yes, there were two there. Well spotted!

I love the tracking picture! I was so enamored of the tracking when on our latest safari in December, that I have started tracking in my yard here in Arizona. I found a mountain lion track! While our lions are much harder to spot that the African ones, it is now a fun hobby of mine to “see” them through their scat and prints.

We had 18mm of rain last night in White River and hoping for more today. Love the lions this week.

Some excellent images James! The one’s of mother leopard and cubs drinking and on the fallen tree trunk……….doesn’t get any better than that!

Weather forecasting across the globe is consistent with its inconsistency!

Interesting to see the hippo out of water.

Wonderful images this week, James. Especially liked the one of the cub drinking at the pan….clearly showing the tongue curled backward to catch the water. Also the white rhino bull and red-billed oxpecker image had such clarity!

Fantastic photo gallery!! The one of the Ximungwe Female and her cubs drinking is a work of art!
