Exciting drive for sure! What “big” lens did you use? f2.8 during the side lighting?
Good morning everyone and Happy Easter to all of those of you who celebrate it this weekend. And to all of those of you who don’t, I hope you a having a marvellous weekend nonetheless. In this week’s episode, shortly after leaving camp, we hear over the radio that the Xinkhova Female is close by. With it being a while since we last saw her, it could be great to see how independent life is treating her.
While waiting to get into the sighting we take a slow bumble around seeing what we can find. Before long we stumble across a herd of elephants with a large male in their midst. Upon closer inspection, the male turns out to be in Musth, in no rush to be anywhere else it is a great chance to give the low down on Musth and why it causes elephants to behave how they do.
As the sighting concludes itself, next on the stop-over list is a magnificent up-close sighting of a few different starlings before we get the radio call that we are able to head across to the Xinkhova Female and are faced with a photographers dilemma of which lens to use.
The sighting just seemed to get better and better as it went on.

Thank you, Ann. It was initially a fixed 600mm Canon lens. And for the side lighting, it was my standard 70-200mm f2.8 lens.
