Great pics this week. Love the hammerkop and the Styx males.

Wonderful pictures always different and peculiar. I didn’t know of red -crested korhaan! So very interesting. Also the frog’s nest. Elephant calves are just too cute! The Styx young male has a lot of scars already… what a funny photo he looks squinting

The leopards are my favourite big cat, it is amazing to see how many leopards there are and how you reconize them individually. The little elephants are so special and to see how they try and walk with the big elephants. Beautiful bee -eater has they catch there prey. The lion prides are always a good sighting and how you know each one of them is astonishing. Thanks for these beautiful foto’s, wonderful to see all of God’s creation.

Cool pictures of so many different species. I like all of them.

James, I really like the photos, I saved the hamerkop, I saved the owl🤗

Great shots James! Love the bee-eater in motion!

I love your photos and some of these, along with your written word, put a smile on my face.

Terrific photos for TWIP! Thanks for sharing!

The patience of the Hamerkop. Somehow, I tie that in to the process of getting rid of Trump, but I can’t say that I have been patient during the last four years!

Hi James! Love the photos this week! The young male lion is the Nkuhuma Male. He’s the got the distinct nick in his left ear, a triangle of whisker spots on his right-hand side of his muzzle, and two whisker spots on his left (above the whisker lines). Best ways to ID him (at least those are what I use)

Your leopards may be in hiding this week but the Djuma and Chitwa leopards and others have been out and about! That is OK…..you have “our” Nkuhuma and Styx young males instead! Beautiful photo of the young Ximungwe boy!

Beautiful pics this week! Love all the baby elephants, and great bird pics too.

Some absolute cracking photos – well done.

It is the culture of photography that is a major asset of Londolozi , along with quite a few things ( fantastic hospitality & driving etc)

Well, another week’s images done and dusted, satisfying our fascination with the wildlife you’ve see this week….. , and I have to ask- was the fly in the lion’s mouth a gift, spotting it in editing? Also, my favorite is the cross-eyed, out-of-focus Nkuhuma lion. Sometimes our “oops” photos become a classic.
Baby animals tug my heartstrings and your Ellies are adorable – more please!!

i like the pictures-Thanks James

James your birds and baby Eli’s stole the show for me this week. But hey, every photo tells a story and every one is just fabulous 🙏💕

Another wonderful and diverse array of images this James! I really appreciate the variety and scope this week… out of necessity or not!

I never tire of the elephant eye shots…or those of baby elephants!

Spectacular photos!!!

Those elephant babies were are so cute! I’ve missed TWIP! Glad to be back.
