Cracking photos, the elephants eye is such a cliche but it works. My favourite is if you can strip the photo down to just one or two colours.

Absolutely superb, well done.

Wonderful…. simply wonderful Alex.

OK – your hippo picture is upside down… I think. There’s a faint – a VERY faint – blue ripple over his head as the picture is now. One of the best reflection photos I’ve ever seen. And may I ask a question – how did you get the lion to open his mouth for the dentist!

Love these photos – especially the one of the elephants trunk showing the minuscule hairs

The photo of the impala hooves and leopard’s tail is a work of art.

Love most of these photos and saved a few to my gallery. I so agree about looking for the abstract in nature or shooting from a different angle. I’m partial to the eyes, trunks and horns… makes one wonder about the rest of the animal.

Absolutely fabulous!!

Alex. Great photos and inspiration.

So many moments on safari are abstract, it is wonderful to see these photos and remember the incredible moments when you just catch a glimpse. Victoria

WOW! absolutely incredible. Thanks for sharing.

Incredible image of the lion’s mouth!

One of my new favorite blogs . . . well done.

Alex, Great and inspiational images! Can’t wait to get back to Londolozi to give it a shot!

Fabulous blog Alex! I love your pictures!!! I bought a Nikon Coolpix P900 (<$600) a couple years back which has a 24-2000mm built-in lens. It can zero in on the smallest part of an animal. I am using it to build a book for my grandkids of “Bits & Pieces” of African animals like many of your photos. The object for them is to identify the animal. Fun!!!
