Here are a few of my favourite photos form my trip to Kruger in September 2008
I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.

Haven't seen a large number of Leopards in our Kruger visits but this one (very pregnant we think) caught on video a few years ago is my wife's all-time favourite. I think I agree with her for once!

Kruger Ellies

Unread post by bishop3006 » Thu Feb 12, 2009 1:33 pm

Mostly my photos are not very good.

This is one of the rare exceptions - the lighting made this a very special photo.
Image

And this one is special, not because of the quality, but because of the way the others protect the calf.
Image

These ellies were both taken in Kruger but don't ask me where as I don't know. Will know when I get there again to note where things were taken.

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).

as has been said that it is difficult to select an all time favourite

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.
