The Fulvous whistling duck is an amazing find. Love the elephant ear and the rhino pics this week.

Another epic week in picture! Those Kurrichane Buttonquails are special birds. I got luckily a few weeks ago in the Pilanesberg with a sighting of a mother and her chick when they moved into the road. Its crazy how small their chicks are! Definitely the smallest bird I’ve seen.

Love the image of the Elephants and Impala . . . two species sharing the same space.

Such a nice way to begin the weekend. The mix of images illustrates how the small creatures are just as interesting and important as the big five. The chick is a classic example.

Thanks for my daily dose of the Londolozi experience!!😍📷📷

As always the Londolozi blogs, especially the week in pictures brightens my world!! Victoria

Like the rhino shot, keep up the good work

As always your weekly pictures are stunning. My thanks, James.

These are some of the best yet! And there are never too many elephant eye shots!

The elephant foot is one of the top five photos I’ve seen in the 18 months I’ve lurked here.

Amazing photograpghs of amazing sightings!! Congratultion on spotting th fulvous whisting duck and the kurrican buttonquail chicls, still need to see both birds myself!!

The rhino and the waterbuck are also really special shots, as is the one of the elephant herd behind the impala herds (beautiful composition)!

Gorgeous photos! Can you tell me what year the Tatowa YM was born? Did he hava brother? I have photos of a Tatowa YM taken in Sabi Sabi 2018, but it is not this leopard.. the one I have is either 1:2 or 2:2 .. Thank your any and all assistance.!

Hi Mj,
The Tatowa YM was born in 2017 and had a sister, but she disappeared shortly before independence, we presume killed.
This is the only TYM we know of as it he is from the only litter the Tatowa female has had to survive (her 2nd litter).
When was your photo taken?

James, I disagree about that LOVELY photo of the leopard with the grass in front of his face. The grass adds to the mystery and the angle of the leopards head and the expression in his eyes MAKES this shot. It’s one of my favourites. One always needs to remember when you take a photo that you have a preconceived notion of HOW you want the shot to look and when it doesn’t, you may feel disappointed. But other people who see the photo don’t see that ‘mythical photo in your head’. They just see, as I did, a lovely photo.
