Hi bwana,
There's no reason to single out a photo from this thread--they're all outstanding. But, one did make me laugh and it was Baffers photo of the smiling baboon (I never did look down to see if the other baboon was also smiling). :lol:
I've got photos to submit also and they have nothing to do with the quality of the image but everything to do with what I find important. To me the occasional interaction between animals and us is a privilege I cherish. The first two are with my wife being sniffed by a black rhino and then an elephant. The last is an orphaned ground squirrel that was adopted by this wonderful lady (the squirrel lives in her collar during the day).

but here is one of mine. :D :D :D

this lady was stalking a group of wildebeest on the s100 (where else) and we followed her for a long while right up until the take down and devouring.
