Pete, I especially the lions crossing the Sand River with the two geese in the photo, and the shot of Birmangham Male drinking the water!

Nice shots, Peter! And a beautiful reminder that patience is necessary when on game drives! You cannot ‘make it happen’! I enjoyed this very much!

Some cracking photos, like the editing of woodland kingfisher , but the Birmingham male would make my wall

Hello Pete,
Enormously beautiful photos!! Patience is a good thing in life… for many things… The first picture is so fantastic! It is not easy to take an interesting picture of a giraffe but here you have done it, what a sunrise and way to start a day!
The second picture is wow!! Beautiful contrasts..
The picture of Nhlanguleni female leopard in the dark is so artistic!
I also love the beautiful photo of the lilac breasted roller!
The photo of the zebras ear etc was a new interesting angel of a photo of zebras! I liked it very much!
And finally, the Tatowa female she is so relaxed with the arm hanging down…
Bravo to you!

The waterbuck/lion stare-off is great. Waterbuck to the lions: “Don’t even think about it.”

What a beautiful array of photos this week. The zebra images are especially nice as is the Birmingham male drinking. Thank you for a great start to the weekend!

Some wonderful and beautiful images, Pete! The Birmingham male looks soft enough to stroke and the coat of the Three Rivers female is spectacularly highlighted! Is she the daughter of the deceased Xidulu?

As usual,.. The best part of my morning. – Pete, these are a wonderful compilation of breath taking extraordinary pictures, that take you out of the present of things, to travel and experience and feel the presence and energy of the bush.

Extraordinary collection, Peter. My mouth was gaping. Especially that Kingfisher. Echoes of the girl in red in Schindler’s List.

Hi Pete, some questions for you. Was wondering if you all have been able to get a confirmation on the sex ratio of the Ntsevu Pride sub-adults and cubs? Also curious if the Nhlanguleni is re-using any of the den sites she used for the Nkuwa and Finfoot females when they were cubs or if those are in the portions of her territory she ceded to her daughters?

Well Pete, this week’s images were all extraordinary! Each one stood on it’s own and had eye-pleasing value. I’m hard pressed to claim a favorite. Patience does pay off. Congratulations on your work and bravo!
