I have created this topic to showcase photographs taken all over Kruger, along with quotes that describe the picture...I do hope you enjoy! :P :thumbs_up:

Here we go... :dance:

“If eyes were made for seeing, then beauty is its own excuse for being.”…I chanced upon this beautiful young Lioness sitting with her eyes fixed firmly on a family of unsuspecting Warthogs.
Image


"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart."...The Lilac-Breasted Roller, one of the most picturesque birds in Kruger, perched itself nicely on top of a tree showing off its kaleidoscopic colours!
Image

“Sudden glory is the passion which makes those grimaces called laughter."...A Male Lion displaying a Flehmen's grimace. Here's a little info for those of you that don't know what it is. There's a specialized organ for detecting scent called the Jacobson's organ, located in the roof of the mouth, and when using this organ, they exhibit a facial expression called "Flehmen". The Flehmen response is most often exhibited by both males and females where other cats have marked their territory by spraying scent. Now you know ;)
Image


"The morning of life is like the dawn of a day, full of purity, visions, and harmony."...This smart looking Black Backed Jackal was the first animal I was greeted by in the morning.
Image


"When I admire the wonders of a Sunset, my soul expands in the worship of the creator."...There is nothing more rewarding then capturing a Giraffe strolling past the setting sun, pure bliss!
Image


“Your big opportunity may be right where you are now.”...I took my opportunity to snap this Big Elephant Bull as he crossed the road.
Image


“Hidden in the glorious wildness like unmined gold.”...This Lion stood and posed beautifully for me, while the golden sunlight early in the morning shone all over him!
Image

More to follow :cam: :wink:

“The eyesight for an eagle is what thought is to a man.”...I saw this classy Bateleur descending upon the road, as it fed on the scraps of roadkill.
Image

"Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts."...I came across a herd of Zebra as they marched through the lush summer greenery. One particular beautifully looking Mare slowly walked passed, and I managed to snap this shot of her.
Image

"If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success."...Two large mature Lionesses brood over a possible hunt, as they pickup on the scent of Buffalo in the area.
Image

"The sense of smell can be an extraordinary evocative, bringing back pictures as sharp as photographs of scenes that had left the conscious mind."...A female Buffalo tilting her head back and skying her nose upwards, as she tries to sniff the pheromones in the air.
Image

"True beauty springs from the heart and dwells in the eyes.”...This beautiful Leopardess with the most enchanting eyes oozed with confidence! She pranced alongside my vehicle with conviction, and occasionally sprayed the bushes with her pungent scent.
Image

More to come... :P

Its not what you look at that matters, its what you see. Henry David Thoreau

I saw this little fellow while making my way to the Stevenson Hamilton memorial. I wished that I could have watched it for longer and managed a better :cam: . This little critter had other things on his mind though and was intent on finding more good stuff in the bushes.

"I see the moon
the moon sees me
God bless the moon
And God bless me"

Old sunday school song.

I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o'er Vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of dancing Daffodils;
Along the Lake, beneath the trees,
Ten thousand dancing in the breeze.
.
.
.
.
For oft when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude,
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the Daffodils.

William Wordsworth
