An admirable array! The ostrich photo is superb. It evokes a fine pen and ink sketch. The wart hogs and stork pics are close behind as favorites today.

Another great photos of the week. The young cub with its mom is definitely my favorite.

Robbie such stunning images this week in TWIP. I loved the image of the lion cubs that is so inquisitive, such beautiful eyes. The Nkoveni female and her two cubs are absolutely gorgeous. Robbie could you please see why I cannot see my points in the point system . Thanks for these adorable images.

Quel plaisir de voir les belles photos de ces superbes animaux, j’espère, si dieu me prête vie, aller un.jour les admirer sur place

Inquisitive lion cub and Nkoveni Female’s new cub stares at its sibling are my favorites.

What a great collection of images! The one of the lioness staring straight into the lens reminded me of an encounter I had with one years ago. While on game drive we heard that a troop of lions had killed a warthog, so we rushed to the sight. When we were there one of the lionesses decided to take her share of the kill to the back wheel of our vehicle. I wanted to take a picture of that, so I hung out of the vehicle and pointed my camera at her. She looked up with frightening eyes, so I quickly snapped a picture and got back into the vehicle. I will never forget that stare.

Lovely photos, well done to both of you. The lion cub is sooo cute…..but leopards always win it for me, especially when it’s of one of my favourites, ie Nkoveni, and her cub. Hope she can have the same success with these 2 as she did with her last litter.

Spectacular moments! The full front image of the lion cub is wonderful – you captured such a crisp image, one can see the characteristics of the fur, the elements of the eyes – beautiful! And the image of the Nkoveni female with her cub is lovely…I really hope she is able to keep the two…such a monumental task, so heartbreaking when they don’t make it. Nature – so beautiful and cruel all at the same time.
Thank you for the captivating images!

Great TWIP Robbie!! All great captures, and that ostrich shot feels iconic. Bravo!!

Robert, there are several good pictures TWIP’s, my favorite is the lioness looking strait back into the camera lens. Just a little disconcerting for the photographer if she continued to approach without looking away. Great shot!

Love Kirst’s leopard photos

I love the ostrich portrait this week–great detail! I’ve also never seen a stork sitting before, so that was fun.

Fantastic photos from the both of you, especially the ostrich portrait and the wart hogs, head to head.

I have not heard the Munghen name before. Where did this pride originate from?

oh those babies!!! great shots as always!

Interesting about the Marabou Stock. New information.

Wow, beautiful! I love the ostrich, wild dog and the warthogs- so beautiful!!!

Robbie, What a great set of images! We love the one of Nkoveni with her cub!

Really like the way Kirst has been managing her Depth of Field (DOF aka bokeh) …also very nice leopards! And Robbie, you are really getting the hang of B&W … well done!
