Terrific TWIP! That shot of the male leopard ascending the tree is stunning! Loved the B&W shots too! Thanks for sharing, Dean!

Thank you for the great comments Darlene

We have a similar image of the Ndzanzeni male cautiously drinking. Most of the comments are about the eyes.

Eyes of most animals are captivating and in B&W, it helps our eyes be drawn to them too.

I always look forward to Friday’s week-in-pictures; it helps maintain my connection to Londolozi until the next time I can visit.

Glad we able to keep that connection alive.

Thank you Ian and long will they.

Stunning pictures all too beautiful to pick a favourite, but I think in this blog it would be the lion cub & leopard on his way up the tree! ? Thank you Dean

Thank you Wendy. The Anderson Male climbing the tree is one of my favourites too.

Excellent weekly photo’s. So many good ones, but especially liked the Anderson male powering up the tree. What strength!! Incredible!

Thank you Joanne, you right that strength is incredible.

Fantastic TWIP, my favourite is also the Anderson male climbing the tree – phenomenal grace and power.

Thank you Suzanne, power is spot on.

Great collection this week. Were the young cheetahs the siblings of the group of mother and cubs that was hanging around earlier, or a different pair?

Thank you Chelsea, yes they were, the mother has since passed away.
