Beautiful images this week from everyone, but Chris’s zebra duo gets my #1 vote. I like the lighting, the symmetry and composition. It’s always a difficult decision, and Sean’s baby elephant was compelling, but I placed my vote towards an image that captured my attention.

The picture of the 2 young male elephants is my pic of the week. Like you, I enjoy spending time with a breeding herd of elephant that has a few youngsters in their number.

Thank you so much, Ian. There is nothing better than spending endless hours with elephants.

Mongoose are among my favorites so that one adorned with the web is my #1.

Sean Zeederberg

Thanks, Willa. Mongooses are such great little animals.

I love the vantage point and mood of the wildebeest image. All the baby elephants warmed my heart. 💗

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Chelsea. I also love the shot of the wildebeest.

Wow! Dogs, leopards, hyena, zebras, elephants and mongoose! What choices we have. I loved the 3 big male lions, but the 2 little male elephants playing caught my eye even more so! Adorable! Great TWIP!

Thank you so much, Darlene. I love baby elephants.

I’m always a sucker for photos of the powerful Senegal Bush male who frequently appears to be determined and focused.
The elephant calf framed by its mother’s trunk & leg gets my vote.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Vin. I agree that the Senegal Bush Male is an impressive beast and has a seriousness about him in most photos, but I am glad you also like the baby elephants.

It is always so very difficult to pick just one picture. The pictures always bring back so many beautiful memories of my trips to Londolozi. But since you asked for just one…I have to go with the one of the two male elephants. I just love elephants. If you allow a second, it would be the mongoose, long family story on that one….!

Thank you so much, Christine. I love elephants too and that pic is stunning. We wont say no to you choosing a second photo so glad you put that in there.

Another week of beautiful photos.
The atmosphere of the rising sun casting a wonderful light over the misty ground and the wildebeest is one of my favorites. The cheeky young elephants are so admirable; the three impressive male lions, the beautiful zebras, the adorable little mongoose, all the leopards, the three oxpeckers peaking over a buffalo’s back, the elephant bull in this beautiful golden light, the hyena, and the great photos of wild dogs… I love them all.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Christa. There were some amazing shots in this week’s TWIP.

Some really great pics Sean, but have to say the baby ellies melt my heart and bring me joy. Thanks for sharing.

Sean Zeederberg

Sandra Scott

So many wonderful pictures. so hard to choose. But my favorite has to be the zebras. next would be all the baby ellies

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, Sandra. The zebras were great.

Anita Santoro

Agree with Denise! Wondering what the Ndzhenga Males were looking at in Kate’s pic tho…stunning shot at well!

Sean Zeederberg

It looks like they are all looking into the camera lens.

William Paynter

My favorite picture this week is the three Ndzenga males together staring at the camera. Pretty impressive group. Thanks for TWIP Sean.

Sean Zeederberg

Thank you so much, William. That is such an intense shot of all the males staring into the camera lens at the same time.

Mary Beth Wheeler
Guest contributor

A wonderful range of images this week! The Senegal Bush male licking a paw, the 2 zebras in golden light were both special. But the little mongoose with delicate spider webs on her nose grabbed my attention and made me smile! That gets my vote for sure!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Mary Beth. It is such a great and interesting shot of the little mongoose.

Chris Cordon

Is the 3 Ndzhenga males or 4 in total, just one not pictured?

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

There is four Ndzhenga Males, but one of them is injured and so he spends very little time with the others.

Valmai Vorster

Sean your foto of the one tiny elephant with it’s trunk in the air is my favorite this week. They are so cute when trying to use their trunks. Beautiful images again this week, thank you so much.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Valmai. I think it was such a cute shot of the baby elephant and so I am glad you like it too.

Lisa Antell
Master Tracker

All photos are beautiful and I always love the leopards. However my favorite this week is the cute dwarf mongoose covered with spider webs!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Lisa. The little mongoose adorned with the spider’s web was so cute.

Kara Taylor
Master Tracker

My favorite was Sean’s baby elephant- how sweet!

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Kara. Baby elephants are always the best to watch.

Carly M

My fave this week is the wildebeest on the open grasslands. Just something so peaceful and ‘African’ about that shot.

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Carly. The wildebeest in the open is great. It was such a tranquil scene.

Francesca Doria
Master Tracker

My sister’s favourite is the calf next to its mum’s leg. I actually love them all ! It is so difficult. At first sight, a peculiar one to me was the wildebeest in the mist. Not a common picture at all it has something mystical

Sean Zeederberg
Blog Editor

Thank you so much, Francesca. I agree there is a certain mystical feeling about the wildebeest in the morning mist.

Ian Hall

Indeed it was.

Gawie Jordaan

Difficult as always to pick one, but the baby ellies & the Senegal Bush Male is standouts! Well done!
