Stunning pics this week. Sad news about the Anderson male. What is the mystery bird from yesterday?

Always sad news when such a well known animal (Anderson) ultimately succumbs to the inevitable. But old age seems in short supply in the bush. We look forward to an update on him as promised. On a happier note, those elephant calves provide lots of entertainment I’ll bet!

Lovely photos, my wall candy would have to be the Tatowa female and cub.

Amazing pictures as always but sad to hear that Anderson is in bad shape.

Thanks James ahhh so probably the Anderson will remain elusive to the Ryans but that is the way. BTW did you ever post the Leopards territories of the South having done a great Job of North and Mid Londolozi Ta

Hi Mike,
Hopefully he can pull through for another 6 weeks until you get here, but sad to see him not looking well.
Leopards of the south is coming out this week!

Enjoyed viewing your WIP, and learning about the gray headed sparrow. Just another little bit to add to my bird knowledge. Sad to learn of the continuing demise of the Anderson male, but when the time comes, as it does for all of us and nature, we can look back and see what an extraordinary life he had. Your stitching effort in lieu of a wide angle lens was fascinating and I thought a great job!!

James, wonderful photos – keep them coming!

Great photos, James, but love the shot of Rich who has tracked for us on 4 occasions. A superb tracker, with exceptionally keen skills!

Thanks for the Tatowa pic. So glad they are doing well. Grant, Jerry and I spent 5 days looking for them in July. Found them on my last day!

Wonderful photos as always. Nice to get updates on some of our favorite characters. What exactly is wrong with Anderson, if you know. He would have turned 11 around August which is not really old yet. I hope he recovers and stays around for a few more years.

Unusual photo of lion cub in tree!

All stunning and interesting images this week, James. Very saddened by the news of the Anderson. He was such a vibrant and strong male, but injuries are common and can bring death. It always amazes me how injured a animal can become and yet somehow live under the right circumstances. Regarding the ID of the bird….I was going to say the right answer, but thought, “Sparrow, naw….to easy.” 🙄

Good evening! Please, is there any new information about the injured Ndzandzeni female leopard ? Thanks.

Some lovely pics James – hard to pick a favourite. I feel so sad to hear about Mr. Anderson. He is a magnificent animal and will be greatly missed. Life in the bush is hard and I guess he has left his mark in the next generation he has sired. Thanks for sharing with us James.

Amazing range of photos, particularly on the leopard front!! And nice shot of the white-browed scrub-robin!!
