Sean, So exciting to hear about and see the young leopards! Hoping they all make it to adulthood! The image of the young leopard with the dark background is our favorite and we also love the B&W image of the giraffe! Wonderful sunrise and sunset shots too!

It is very exciting. We just hope that the young leopards are able to survive.

I love the Elephant Photo. I saw an elephant shaking a tree when I visited Africa. And it was a happy reminder of that time.

Thank you so much, Barbara.

Favorite photo? Oxpecker with tick. Excellent representation of the southern expression ‘tight as a tick’

Sean Zeederberg

Seeing the Oxpecker pluck off the tick is a classic photo.

It’s heartwarming and so impressive that the Nstevu females have kept these three cubs still alive. The Birmingham males were beautiful and powerful and it’s sad that they are gone now. I find it perplexing that the four Ndzhenga males with all of their physical defects and to be honest, not the most handsome of male lions have moved forward and merged with the Nstevu pride. I would have thought their lineage to be too weak. One can hope these deformities won’t carry through to the cubs.

We are so happy that these young cubs have survived this long. I hope they make it through. We will have to wait and see what unfolds with the lion dynamics going forward.

A lovely TWIP again, but how can anything compete with Plaque Rock picking up her tiny cub? – well done Kyle!

Sean Zeederberg

It is such an amazing shot. A photographers dream as you would know to see a mother carrying her cub.

All pictures are absolutely gorgeous and peculiar and it’s a very hard choice! I love the Three Rivrr Female I think she is a very beautiful leopard with stunning eyes..
But I succumbed to the Nglanguleni cub’s charm, she is a real poser! All gorgeous, leopards, cheetah, lions, the elephant bull, the giraffe , the little bird and of course the Plaue Rock Female with her new cubs! Great, a Weekend gift

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Francesca. They are all great pics.

Hi Sean what a good mix of foto’s this week. My favorite foto this week is the Plague Rock female with her tiny cub in her mouth. Who can resist this foto, to precious for words. Loved the lions lying together and the Blue Wagbill is such a pretty bird. Nhlanguleni cubs are growing by the day.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Valmai.

All the furry leopard cub images are too wonderful to choose one, so my choice this week is the magnificent male cheetah, standing tall on the termite mound. His eyes totally captured the sunlight

Sean Zeederberg

The leopard cub pics are always great.

Vin Beni

For me, it was the Nhlangleni Female’s young cub looking at a sibling. The beautiful morning light really enhanced the photo.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thanks, Vin. The Nhlanguleni Cubs are providing such great photographic opportunities of late. We are so fortunate.

What an awesome variety of pics this week! It’s hard to choose my favourites – so I’m going with 3! The beautiful Blue Waxbill (such a stunning little bird), the male cheetah and the vervet monkey all have my vote! However, there were so many good shots! I also loved the elephant, the giraffe and all those cute cubs! Well done guys!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Carly. Those are three great choices. In a way it is a good thing if we are making it difficult to choose a favourite amongst these.

As much as I love my big and now little cats, I have to cast my vote for the beautiful, misty sunrise. Well done, my friend!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Linda. Sunrises in winter are spectacular.

The Nhlanguleni cubs obviously take after their mother in the looks department. Gorgeous little cubs. And the Ntsevu females are doing an exceptional job keeping the three youngsters away from the Ndzhenga Males

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

The Nhlanguleni Cubs are really cute little cubs at the moment and certainly taking after their mother. I agree, the Ntsevu Females are do a fantastic job of keeping the last Birmingham Cubs alive.
