Fantastic pics this week. Love the rhinos. We had 237mm rain in White River.I see more rain is predicted for next week. It is wonderful to have such good rains this season.

Hi James are the young white rhino in a sort of nursery guarded by a baby sitter like giraffe? Very beautiful pictures!

James, thanks for all the great shots! We’re so happy to see that you came through the storm so well. The images of the river so high that we’ve seen over the past week are so surprising compared to what it’s normally like in the winter. Thanks for sharing a couple of images of our Mashaba. We’re so glad that she’s doing well!

Mashaba female leopard lying in the leadwood tree is so beautiful. Totally at ease and she can she very far when she wakes up. The giraffe bull has much darker brown markings than the female. Ximungwe admitting he has been seen by raising his tail, although he was trying to be so discreet, is so sweet. Rhinos are always a good sighting. Thanks James wonderful foto’s.

How wonderful to have enough rain for the herbivores to enjoy a feast of vegetation through the coming dry season. No doubt this will keep the cats close to home..so to speak.! Great photos James but the bagworm wins for me this week❤️ just great ! Oh and loved the rhino 🙏😊

The photo of the giraffes really shows the difference in size between the male and female. Most often they all look tall no matter sex. Super pics of the dragonfly and caterpillar as well as the red hornbill. You never share boring images!!
