One of the most beautiful machines in the air is the Martial Eagle. I filmed them in flight at Olifantscamp, the right spot to be for watching birds of pray in flight. :wink:

Hi rayb, how are you. Yes I use still the XM2 I like this camera very much, its sharpness and colours are great. How is it with your XM2 camera and did you filmed in Africa this year?
Greetings, Nico

Crying Toddler, a young Blue Wildebeest that probably lost his/her mother at a Lion kill and he/she is constantly calling mother, the poor thing. :(

Kgalagadi. A sad story was the car crash of some idiot that hit an Ostrich near Mata Mata. The poor bird broke her legs. A Ranger was on the spot and shot the poor bird. The next morning there was an old male Lion with a mouth problem. The Ostrich was an easy meal for the old Lion. The idiot that killed the Ostrich got a very high fine but maybe it was better that the man was throwing out of the park for the coming ten years. :rtm:

Between Punda & Pafuri, KrugerPark. One of the most beautiful parts of KrugerPark is the North between Punda Maria and Pafuri. :wink:

Hi Micetta, sorry for the late answer but I just came out of Hospitel.

The singer is Vicky Sampson singing Mr AfriKan Dream from her album "ZAI" :wink:
