Those leopard & cheetah eyes staring at the lens is captivating! I also find the brown snake eagle a beautiful bird.

There is something special about that connection of a predator staring into the lens. It is also a cracking shot of the Snake Eagle.

I have 2 favorites: zebra’s drinking and the Nkoveni Young Female.

Sean Zeederberg

Those are two great choices. Thank you, Sandra.

Great TWIP! Enjoyed all the photos! Our favorite is the two cheetah with the youngster yawning as mama prepares to move on. All the photos were terrific! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you so much, Darlene. It is almost a little bit comical with the way the young cheetah is yawning.

Hi Sean, my favorite picture this week is the two Zebra standing next to each other, and having a drink. Not worried at all that the Land Rover was there. So many beautiful pictures and a vast variety. Loved the Nkoveni leopard cubs that soon will be on their own.

Those are some fantastic images that you have chosen this week.

Very hard choice again! I also in between the zebra in golden light, the cheetah, the Nzenga male and theNkoveni young female… in the end I had to choose her. She’s just perfect and the pictures show her whole beauty

I agree that the Nkoveni Young Female is such a stunning leopard.

The oriole as to be my favorite this week. The yellows are so cheerful! 💛

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

The image of the Oriole is so stunning with its vibrance and pop of beautiful colours.

Wonderful TWIP Sean! The young male cheetah is exceptionally good looking so I suspect his mum is quite a good hunter, keeping him looking fit. As I scrolled through the photos, I kept returning to Kirst’s portrait of the Avoca male – blood and grass smeared face evocative of the recent kill and the feeding frenzy that usually occurs, so that’s my vote for this week.

The young cheetah is in great condition, so yes it is safe to assume that his mother is a great hunter and is doing a sterling job in raising him.

The most wonderful photos again this week. I love them all: the beauty of the leopards, the mother cheetah and cub, the great bird photos, the zebras, the hippo frightening away competitors and all the lions. Thanks so much!

Thank you so much, Christa.

Loved the zebra pics – those were lovely – always so photogenic, as well as the black and white lion. Beautiful 😊

Sean Zeederberg

Zebra are incredibly photogenic and a black and white image of a male lion also has something profound about it.

Black headed oriole and the Nkoveni female on the horizontal branch

Sean Zeederberg

Those are two great choices.

Definitely the pensive look on the Nkoveni Young Female

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

She is deep in thought, the clarity of the eyes makes you feel as though you are there in person.

Nick’s snake Eagle photo wins for me this week.👍🤩😍 🦅

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Being able to see the bright yellow eyes of the Snake Eagle adds a certain intensity to the image, doesn’t it?

William Paynter
Master Tracker

Sean, my favorite picture this week is the first shot of the two zebra’s with the setting sun behind them. Truly a remarkable shot.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

It is a remarkable shot, the golden lights adds to the image in such a magnificent way.

Carly M
Senior Digital Ranger

Great pics guys. My favourite this week is the Black headed Oriole or the two zebra’s drinking at the waterhole!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

The Black-headed Oriole is such a stunning bird and the aloes surrounding it make the most gorgeous scenery.

Carolyn Clarkson
Explorer

Once again, visual richness. Thank you. The hippo picture was amazing and I learned a dominance ritual for that species. I always love to look at the birds you manage to capture. Africa has such varied and fantastic bird life.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Carolyn. Yes, the hippo thrashing its head around and yawning is a sign of dominance. We are spoilt with a variety of birdlife here.

Johanna Browne
Senior Digital Ranger

Gorgeous photos as usual. Another subject, but am I to understand that the Tsalala Female and Mungheni Female are hanging out together?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thanks so much, Johanna. Yes, the Tsalala Female is now moving around with one of the Mhangeni Lionesses.

Awesome week of photos, and loving the representation of the cheetah!!
