The photo of those two zebra’s is simple but stunning!! And I love the images of the Ntsevu Lionesses on the road and the spotlit Three Rivers Female!


Callum, I hear you totally! One of the very best wildlife photos I ever saw was a black and white photo of a zebra stallion on a kopjie, sniffing the air. The background was totally blown out making the zebra look like he was standing in mist, but every hair on his body was pin sharp. The photo was taken with a Canon Powershot SX50HS, f6.5, 1/800 second and 200 ISO. The photographer, Sharon Hoffman, said she wanted to get a silhouette but ‘quite liked’ the detail that came through. The photo was a finalist in a Getaway Gallery competition and I never understood why it didn’t win. It was without a doubt THE best black and white wildlife photo I have EVER seen.

Great shots. Why do the cubs look so different in age?

James Tyrrell

Hi Linda.
Because they are!
There is a variance of a good few months between litters. Also, even at this age the difference between males and females starts becoming apparent, with the males being slightly bigger.

Love the panning zebra shot!! Thank you!

Just back from a trip to Kruger for a week. I have not seen the grassvas high and thick in 37 years if going to Kruger. We saw hundreds of elephants. Huge herds with the tiniest babies. We saw harlequin quails next to the road. The saddest was a tiny zebra foal standing for hours on the tar road by itself. The herd probably moved on and left it behind. It was already dehidrated when we saw it. It is nature but still difficult to see. Love the lion pics this week.
