Wow Sean, what a great set of images! We love the way you are getting creative with the B&W photos and also washing out the background. Nice editing! The Rhino in the golden light is a keeper!

Hi Michael and Terri, thank you, I feel that photography is a great way to get in touch with one’s creative side and try a few different things. I have always loved monochrome images and now are managing to find some great opportunities to try it.

Once again, stunning pictures capturing the leopards and elephants. TWIP is always showing something new and unique and this one is no exception. The African Green Pigeon picture is superb . Thanks for my virtual safari this week.

Not really one of the big 5 but I loved seeing the African Green Pidgeon. So many colorful birds in Africa get ignored. Bee eaters are my favorite along with Sunbirds

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

The African Green Pigeon is a stunning bird, Bee-eaters too, and of course we cannot forget the Sunbirds. All of them are gorgeous.

Wow -pictures today! Leopards in all poses real top models, and the cubs! Too cute. Also elephant and rhino calves with mums and how relieving is to see big leopard, lions, rhino and elephant bulls with their spectacular horns and teeth. Did the gorgeous Othawa male leave offspring? The picture of the Ximungwe female in the late golden light is a poem.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

We believe the Othawa Male did have cubs but sadly the last remaining two are with the Mhangeni Pride that we know of. If they are able to survive then at least his genes will be passed on.

Leopard in a tree? Check that bucket list sighting! Gorgeous!

Sean Zeederberg

Yes, we can check that one off the list.

Sean this is a cracking week of foto’s, full of beautiful animals and birds. Loved the Ximungwe female and her cub and also the Piccadilly female and her cub. Baby rhino to sweet for words. The two pics of Ximungwe female with the sun behind her is stunning. African green pigeon has such beautiful colors. Little elephant to gorgeous following it’s mom.

Beautiful pics! Absolutely love the African Green Pigeon – just stunning and of course the elephants. Amazing.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Carly. I am glad you enjoyed them this week.

How fortunate to have spent so much time with the Ximungwe female and her cub lately. Seems the cub has become totally habituated to the vehicles, unlike the Piccadilly cub who originally was very skittish. Always fun to watch herds of elephants, especially the little ones and that rhino baby! Wonderful group of photos this week by you, Chris, Robert, and Kyle. Thank you!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Hello Denise, yes the cub is now very relaxed around the vehicles making viewing the two exceptional. The Picadilly Female’s cub is still skittish but is also getting better. We are starting to see the two of them more and more on Londolozi. We hope that this will help the cub relax further.

Suzanne Gibson

Fantastic selection, Sean – it’s not just your dad who thinks so! If I had to pick just 2 favourites, they would be the Piccadilly female and her cub, and Chris’ photo of the African green pigeon – who knew pigeons could be so beautiful!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Suzanne. I am so happy you also agree. African Green Pigeons are stunning.

I have never seen a Serrated Terrapin up close and personal, Sean. Very interesting. Didn’t know they could pull up a hinged Plastron in the front. I must remember never to take a close up of a Serrated Terrapin from the back!! Loved the baby Rhino. Very cute. They always are! Took the lovely Green Pigeon to use as a Screensaver. Really lovely. And the reflection is beautiful too! Thanks, Sean! Wendy M

Hi Wendy, they are fascinating-looking creatures, terrapins, and certainly do not want to touch them, during my training course we convinced one of the other trainees Bruce, to try and catch one, which he did. His hands smelt for three days no matter how hard he tried to wash them.
I am so glad you enjoyed all the pictures this week.

A really nice collection of wildlife Sean and the pics are really great. Nice to see some of the black and white ones also. Can’t pick a favourite. All good. Thanks for sharing.
