Once again, a great collection to make up TWIP, but this week I feel the “less is more” photo of the cheetah has to be my favourite.

Thank you so much, Daryl. The cheetah shot is spectacular.

All wonderful but the Ximungwe young male in the golden light is my favourite

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Francesca. The Ximungwe Young Male always providing amazing photographic opportunities.

Megan Kane-Berman’s photos are very refreshing!!! So colorful capturing the smaller species in the Bushveld!

Sean Zeederberg

I have to agree, Megan’s images are so stunning.

Terrific week! I especially loved the first photo of the male cheetah on the fallen marula tree. A ‘high key’ look! Mesmerizing! Thanks for sharing all of these beautiful photos.

Absolutely stunning photos once again which makes it near impossible to choose a favourite. My love for the gentle giants has swayed me this week so my vote goes to the elephant bull reaching into the Marula tree. His trunk could easily be mistaken for another branch!

Sean Zeederberg

Elephants are indeed gentle giants. It is a great shot of Kyle’s.

The little bee eaters and sunbirds are like precious jewels. Thank you.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Doug. The bee-eaters and sunbirds bring so much colour and life to the bush.

Sean my favorite foto this week is the Ximungwe young male on his hind legs, something you hardly ever see the leopards do. This foto needs to be frame forsure. Lovely foto’s of the sugar birds, their colours are absolutely stunning.

Sean Zeederberg

It is a great sighting of the Ximungwe Young Male. It is not often that you get to see a leopard on its back legs.

Paul Canales

Wonderfully varied set of images this week! Always hard to pick a favorite, but that opening shot of the cheetah is stunning!!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Paul. The cheetah shot is stunning.

Carly M
Senior Digital Ranger

Oh wow!! You have seriously outdone yourselves this week!! How do you choose a favourite from all of those?! 😀 There are so many beautiful shots there! My favourite a are – that exquisite pic of the cheetah, the beautiful bee eater and both of the sunbirds. But, it I had to pick – my vote is for the bee!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Carly. Those are some great choices. The shot of the bee is gorgeous.

I’m still entertained by the kid-like behavior of the Ximungwe male and so my vote goes to Kyle, with a second vote for Kelsey’s dwarf mongoose. You all are submitting amazing photos but then you’ve fantastic subjects to shoot! Seeing these just fuels my desire to return and hopefully my trip for next year will be locked in place.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Denise. The subjects have been exceptional of late. Hopefully we see you here again soon.

I loved Megan’s images of the sunbird and insects. The butterfly especially reminded me of another almost alien world, similar to Avatar. It’s wonderful how a subtle perspective shift can make you feel so small, as if standing next to a giant butterfly.

Michael and Terri Klauber
Guest contributor

Sean, Wow, what an incredible set of images! The colors really caught our attention. The butterfly, bee and sunbird images from Megan (well done!) are fabulous!

Francesca Doria
Master Tracker

Besides the Ximungwe young male I particularly love the insects both bee and butterfly with flowers it is not a usual picture and they have both lot of summer colours although it’s wintertime

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

That is the unusual part is that they present colours you would expect to see in summertime, but the aloes are in full bloom at the moment punctuating the landscape with amazing bursts of colour.

Loved your shot of the leopard in the tree. Also the Xmungwe male on his hind legs. Ximungwe has raised two very curios and beautiful sons❤️ By the way- the virtual safari with the mother and cubs — priceless!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Kay. The Ximungwe Female has done a superb job as a mother.

William Paynter

TWIP is again spectacular , the cheetah high on the fallen tree overlooking the territory is really the shot for me. Thanks Sean.
