I call this one “Toes and Tails”.  A few close up images of lions and leopards from my last time out in the bush.

Wishing everyone a safe and healthy week ahead.

This image is a bit of a continuation of yesterday’s Leopards at night theme.

The one difference here is this was shot under a red spotlight, whereas the images shared yesterday were either with a spotlight without a colour filter, or under natural available light.  I’ll be working on some more of the images shot under red light shortly, and share them as a separate post.

I hope you enjoy – happy Monday!

Much like yesterday, today also felt like a perfect day to share an elephant image.

This was shot while staying at Lion Sands Tinga Lodge.  We couldn’t go on a game drive without seeing elephants, sometimes an immense number of them, which our guide kept commenting on.  It made me incredibly happy, since they are my favourite animal to spend time with our on safari.

Happy Monday!

I thought a few landscape images would be a good way to start the week.  These are all from my last trip to South Africa.

The Potholes, one of the stops along the Panorama Route in South Africa.  Shockingly, while we were there we saw someone climb partway down one of the steep rock faces to take a selfie!

An image I took at lunchtime at Lion Sands Rover Lodge, while playing around with my infrared filter.  It’s definitely something I want to work more with!

Yesterday I shared a few very colourful photos of my favourite African bird, the lilac-breasted roller, and today, some monochrome images of my favourite cat, the leopard.

I’ve gone on an on before about how amazing I think it is to spend time with a leopard, so I won’t repeat myself today, and instead, leave you to the few images below, and wish you a fantastic week.
