My favorite bird pic has to be this Cape Batis which I have tried to get for over a year in the gardens of Addo Main camp and finally he obliged 2 months ago
Image

My favorite animal shot has to be this little lion cub I found on 3 consecutive days on Biyamiti Loop with his family. By the 3rd day it was obvious to me that he now recognised and accepted me. We had this pride to ourselves at all times. This pic is my favorite just on cuteness value!

My favorite pic at the moment is this one....normally Leopards give you that intense chilling stare but this young lioness didnt take her eyes off me for about 10 minutes!!! I dont think she blinked either :D

Thank you bucky, knowing your pictures that means a lot to me.

But my most recent favourites are here:

But most of you will know these pictures from my Kruger story. If not just follow the below link and you will find some more pictures of these cheetahs and the story behind.

I love Ludwigs cheetahs, it's one of the cats we'd love to see.
Heres a favorite photo, I was just blasting away at some Elands, and didn't realise how nicely lined up these two were, till later.

I went all by myself and had the most fabulous 3 days holiday in the park. I cannot wait to go again. The highlight of my trip was to see a leopard in a tree with its kill. I was so overawed did not take a photo.

Just one of my many favourites from last years trip to Kruger.
Not the best pictures but the two expressions are priceless!!
Just shows how you can get two completely different pictures with the same subject.
This is the same lion!!

To??

Looks like the guy saw a ghost!!
