Awesome pucs this week. Love the last one of the sunrise and the vultures.

Vultures at sunset?

My guess is sunrise, as they’d been roosting in that tree all night. Either way though, it’s an evocative shot.

I enjoyed all the photos, but particularly loved the impala stotting, the zebra reflection, the baby elephant, and the silhouette of the vultures. I am guessing the silhouette was taken at sunset, but that is purely a guess, no reasoning behind it! Thanks for another great TWIP! Rest up those arms now after using that 600mm! 😂

The single wild dog really is an enigma. We’ve only seen them in packs.

Thank you yet again. My Fridays always get off to good start with Londolozi’s ‘Week in Pictures’.

Nice photos, love the parrot


Great pixs! Sunrise?

Nothing quite as cute as a baby elephant or as foreboding as vultures waiting patiently in a tree!

I have not seen a photo of the Anderson male in months. Has anything happened to him over this period of time?

James, I particularly like the photo of the 2 hippos and the terrapin, also the one with 3 whitebacked vultures in silhouette. I’ll go with sunrise!

Sunset…..and ‘hi’ to Talley.

It just has to be sunset!

Stunning pictures all. Me thinks sunset 😁

Nice work on getting that parrot shot, still need to see those birds for myself!!

It’s a beautiful TWIP, and I especially enjoyed the zebra reflection. It’s not often that one can catch one or a group drinking. The young ellie was a perfect portrait of a little cutie.
As far as the last photo, this always stumps me- I’m going to guess sunrise based on the colors of the sun and the vultures perched in the tree. There’s a blog in itself- how to tell the difference between sunset and sunrise…. even google photographers stated it is tricky.

Thanks for all the comments everyone.
The vulture photo was taken at SUNRISE.
It’s very tricky to tell though, so it’s literally a 50-50 coin toss!

James, pretty amazing that there is such excitement in just 1 week! Always happy to see our Mashaba, and with her latest mating, maybe she will have another chance to raise cubs again soon – hopefully successfully… The Zebra reflection shot is a classic for sure and we added it to our collection of “favorites!”
