Hello everyone,
I'm a newbie on this forum and it's the first time that I'm attempting to download some of my photos. I hope it works but forgive me if it doe'snt.
These pics were taken at the KNP over a few trips. I hope you can share the same pleasure I had in taking them. That's why I LOVE Kruger!
Cheers.

Wow............I did'nt expect such a quick response, I only posted a few minutes ago. :shock:
I'm using an older Nikon D200 with cheapish lenses, I can't afford those big professional lenses. :(
Thank you all for the warm welcome. It's nice to be welcomed to such a friendly forum. I surely will post more. :P

Cheers.

Hello everyone,
Thank you all for taking the time to view my pics and for your kind words of encouragement. It means a lot to me and encourages me to post more.
As a wannabee wildlife photographer with a limited holiday budget and average camera gear, it can be quite challenging to work within the constraints of KNP road laws to get those 'cover' shots seen in some wildlife magazines. So, when these animal friends present themselves for a photo opp, I feel extremely honoured and priveledged to get any kind of image at all and feel doubly rewarded and satisfied if it comes out even half decent.
Now, seeing that you asked me so nicely for more, how can I refuse. :lol:

Picnic, do you mean this male lion? :)

Can't figure out what his eating.
