Wow! Stunning pics. Love the male lion. It is wonderful to see the Tamboti young female looking so good. She must be around a year and 9 months old?

Magnificent image of the Martial Eagle in flight.

Lions march according to their own time table – hunting, sleeping, nursing….. the former Mhangeni ladies seem to be demonstrating their ability to care for all of these cubs without breaking a sweat! Hopefully they will be able to raise the majority of them to adulthood. Nice portrait of the young Tamboti female. How’s the Ndzanzeni young male faring?

Hi Denise,
I think he’s well. I haven’t seen him myself for a couple of weeks but he has been spotted from time to time. I imagine as he’s getting bigger he’ll be receiving more pressure from his father the Inyathini male to move out.

Best Regards,

Wonderful blog again, James. My particular favourites were of the Tamboti young female – I saw her with her mother in Oct ’17 (guess she must be approaching 2 now?) Lovely to see her looking so well, showing off that beautiful golden coat that she’s inherited from the Sunset Bend female.

Hi Suzanne,
Yes she’s in good health and I think you’re right; nearly two years old!

What impressed me in this bunch of pics was the excellent one of the Martial Eagle in flight. The power in those limbs and those talons are quite intimidating! Wendy M

The grandeur, focus and strength are certainly captured in the flight image of the Martial Eagle. The size of their kills is impressive. Nice series of images this week.
