A pleasure as always.. Happy you are on your way back to some semblance of normal. Thank you for sharing

What a bumper week with some very unique photos ! Stunning 👌🏻💕🙏🏻

We can’t know what animals feel, but those two lionesses look affectionately bond and this is a very special picture. As usual the kudu is utmost beautiful. Leopards were considered Gods by Etruscan people and it looks as if they really are. Insects are so intriguing and I wish to see more about them. I wonder if birds sang differently during the lockdown but I guess nothing really changed that much over there as it’s a rare paradise, completely different from our cities. Buffalo make me feel a light shiver as they are so mighty and may rightly be aggressive. … I’d be a bit nervous near them! Beautiful animals. Great rhino on the run!

Buffalo licking its nose , this behaviour is fascinating in that nostrils play a pivotal role in respiratory system . dust or pollen is not welcome in that area.

Bees have important ecologically role which many a time goes unnoticed.Their ecologically,social,commercial significance is important to the ecosystem.

I don’t know WHY James, but many of your pictures this week, gave me goosebumps! .. First, seeing the variations in height of the Giraffes was amazing! (The tallest one, for sure!)
Second, being a feline lover, seeing the different captures of the lioness (especially), always brings a fun sense of thought, as the first thought that comes to mind is “Ohhww! the big ol lazy kitties!” The expression on the Mhangeni Lionesses faces is PRICELESS! (Just oversized from a regular domestic cat). – When I look at the Avoca male, it makes me wonder how he was as a cub amidst surviving to be what he is today. he looks like one tough trooper!
.. Third, the Hippo calf looks so joyful! You can’t help but say “What an adorable picture!”
Lastly, the surrounding energy of the your pictures this time does not feel like Spring. They give the impression of Winter, which in-itself presents the unique observation amidst the “Climactic environment” that animals live within through out the year.

Thanks for the kind words
