Love the leopards this week. Great pics of elephants.

Beautiful photos! I LOVE the Three Rivers female. She has replaced Legadema from Botswana as my all time favorite leopard!!! I am crossing all my fingers and toes that your hard drive survives, James. That is heart breaking! Let us know!

Thanks Darlene.

The Rice worked: back up and running!!

I enjoyed the wide-ranging blog today, showcasing the wide variety of life on Londolozi (and no pun intended!). Hope the hard drive heals!

The beautiful pic of the Great Egret has such an interesting article attached. So the aigrette plumes are the reason for the name “Egret”. Fascinating, James. Thank you. Wendy M

Hi Wendy,
Yip, some seemingly mundane species have fascinating stories behind them!

Spectacular week in pictures- you’re fortunate that Londolozi has such a skilled staff of ranger/photographers. These photos bring back such great memories!

Such an incredible set of images!!! That’s a very different angle on that big tusker there! I love the photos of the Three Rivers, Mashaba and Ximungwe Females, and that martial eagle and hyena!!

I wish a pgymy kingfisher would fly into my window, the Cape Town birders would go crazy!!

And I can’t wait to see that swimming leopard post!!

Me neither!

As always lots of wonderful pictures of animals doing their thing!! Love getting these reports!! Victoria

Thanks from the Team Victoria!

I LOVED the picture and the story of the Pygmy Kingfisher. I read somewhere – I can’t offhand remember where – that MANY kingfishers fly into buildings, the reason being that when they migrate they fly low and they fly in a straight line. I don’t know if this is right but last year a Malachite Kingfisher flew into a friend’s window and was killed. So this does seem to be a common occurrence.
