New photos bottom of this post.

LindaS – glad you enjoying them. It was nice watching the buffalo play in the mud. Regarding the butterflies yes it took a long time to get these shoots and it was not in camp it was out on a drive so people stopped and when we told them what we were shooting they looked at us as if we were mad. Leeupan 100%.

PetraJ – thank you I will keep them coming.

leo21 – I promise more to come.

Radman – thank you.

Granjan – thank you.

Yusuf – thanks. Various Sony cameras and lenses. Some full frame A900 and some A700.

Crested Val – How have you been and yes I remember that night well. We will be visiting KTP again in 8 weeks and cannot wait combining with trip to Etosha.

Sharifa – thank you for the nice comments and even I was pleased with the butterfly photos they came out better than I expected.

Elize de Klerk – thank you.

naomi c – thank you.

Hilda – thank you and the shoot with mist shows a different side to KNP that’s what made me take the shoot.

Pumbaa – thank you.

john n poppy – How have you been? You never know we make a visit but we have a 3 week trip to KTP / Etosha etc in September.

I want to thank you all for the nice comments.

Regarding the equipment and software below is my normal setup:

Sony A700 with Sigma 50-500mm
Sony A900 with Sony 70-400Gmm
When landscape i change to Sigma 10-20mm with spirit level attached to camera
If animal is fairly close i change lenses to Sony 70-200 2.8
Regarding macro i use a Sony 100mm macro lense with twin flash setup
I have various other flashes but only use for side lighting and rarely
In the morning and late afternoon i use UV filters and in the middle of the day circular pl filters
beanbags in the car and manfrotto trippod for shoots outside car
regarding software a use adobe photshop lightroom and framefun for the framing

i just received my new A77 to allow me to take HDR and video on the new trip in 4 weeks.

Hope the above answers the question.
