I am a budding Wildlife Photographer. I live in Durban, SA and I've been going to the Kruger Park every year since I was 6 months old (I'm now 18).
Here are 3 of my favourites from my latest Kruger trip in Dec/Jan 2009-2010:

Image
Open-Billed Stork in the Shingwedzi River

Image
Mopani Caterpillar (I think) at Mopani Rest Camp

Image
I have no clue what KIND of Spider this is ... all I know is that it's of the SCARY kind :shock:

Thanks all :thumbs_up:

Me and my dad were watching two male lions at Nsemani Dam in April and we had been there for a hour or so when all of a sudden this boomslang popped up out of the log about a meter and a half from where we were parked.

Watched it for more than 30 min before it slithered out of the log, under our car and up a tree on the other side of the road.
:thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

@CathJakins I like the male kudus at Addo! Although the photo is a bit grainy and the colours are a bit over-saturated, the composition really works. :cam:


The day that I took the photo was a really dreary and horrible day so the lighting wasn't good at all :evil: . And we were so far away from them so I've tried to make it look as striking as possible (with the little tools I have - no photoshop or anything) but evidently it hasnt worked. :slap:
Here's the original without cropping and only a slight adjustment of light:

Much prefer these colours. The non-cropped version is nice too. I like the desolate, minimalistic mood of it. Perhaps crop a bit off the top, to get the horizon on a third.

Hope you dont mind...I cropped it, removed teh noise, franctionally sharpened it, and then converted it to mono using a red filter effect to bring out the depth.

I did this in Paint shop Pro. Just to demonstrate that soetimes, "drab" photos make great mono shots :)
