“The Ximungwe Young Male ascending a Marula tree at sunrise.” This to me, is the shot of the week. Closely followed by the inquisitive look on the face of “One of the Nhlanguleni Female’s young cubs cautiously peeked around the bushes with the afternoon sun creating a beautiful glow around its ears.” Beautiful.

Fabulous TWIP again – especially Dan’s one of the Ximungwe young male climbing the tree at sunrise, Barry’s one of the Verreaux eagle owl (how lucky to see it in the open during daylight hours) and my winner is Kyle’s one of the Nhlanguleni cub on the rocks….incredibly cute!

Thank you so much, Suzanne. Those are all some great images.

Lots of fantastic photos to choose from! Going with the one that grabbed the most oohs and aahs in our household, the Nhlanguleni cub resting on the boulder is the winner! Great shots by everyone! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much, Darlene. The photo of the Nhlanguleni Cub is a fantastic one.

So hard to choose the best shot from so many stunning photos. The Ximungwe Young Male climbing the marula tree is my pick closely followed by the quintessential shot of the Verreaux’s Eagle Owl.

Thank you so much, Jennifer. It is such a fantastic shot of the silhouetted leopard climbing the marula.

For me the shot of the week is the Ximungwe young male at sunrise. Classic pictures to cap off TWIP. Thanks to everyone for there patients and participation in TWIP.

Thank you so much, William. It is a great shot of the Ximungwe Young Male.

I’m loving the Ximungwe Young Male with his big yawn! If you had not said it was a yawn I would have thought it was big growl! The pic of the baby giraffe is very precious, too!

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Debra. It is a great shot of the yawn.

The shot of the week for me is Barry’s cub, looking at the vehicle, the sun providing a halo around his ears. Every photo presented is special but this captured my imagination. The other special image for me was the slender mongoose, it’s head in sharp focus to highlight the eye. Excellent shots everyone!

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Denise. Photography is great because every image has a story and you can let your imagination run wild sometimes.

Sean my favorite foto this week is the baby giraffe with the umbilical cord still attached to it. So beautiful and protected by Mom nearby. All the foto’s this week very absolutely stunning especially the leopard cubs. Congrats Robbie your foto was stunning of the little cub resting on a branch. Very special foto indeed.

Tremendous photogrphy–particularly the 2 silhouettes. I’m a softie, however. Love the Nhlanguleni Female’s young cub.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Vin. The silhouette shots are great but think the cub takes the cake.

Which photo do I like best?
All of them, though actually the leopard cubs are again sooo cute.
But also the hippo, the battered lion and the young giraffe and especially the owl and the slender mongoose are such interesting photos.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Christa. Leopard cubs are always so cute and tend to get lots of votes.

Francesca Doria

Spectacular pictures! It’s so difficult to choose… all gorgeous. I can’t pickup one maybe the leopard cub, the baby giraffe and the Ximungwe young male. The hippo is great as well

My favorite photo is “Mothering is thirsty work”. I think it shows the incredible power of that lioness.

Sean Zeederberg

Mothering is indeed thirsty work.
