Jake, you have an amazing group of animals you share with us tied to yourphotography skillsare awesome!!
Yes, we are very priviliged to have what's here, although it doesn't always come easily - This trip we took week before last was a round trip of 2,500 km, but worth every bit of the trip.

Thanks for looking in !!

Thanks, Knight - No, we don't live on a nature reserve, however, the Kruger National Park, a reserveof about 20.000 sq Km's is about 6 hrs drive from us, andmy wife and I try and get there a few times a year, we are due to go again in August for two weeks, a REAL treat !

Great series. I love the mangoose and the pigeon. Have not seen these before. Yah, the Kruger is a lovely place. Spent a whole week in Sept 2005 and it was not enough. Hope to go again.

About the sign post, possibly stray bullets. Possibly actions of irrational individuals. :G Regards. Jaki.

That grean pigeon is really beautiful and the creasted barbet, you must have been a couple of metres away from it.

I wish the Kruger Park was a bit closer to me. Fortunately I have Addo and Mountain Zebra, but they just can't compare to the diversity and sheer numbers of the animals of the Kruger. I wish I was into photography on the last trip I went on about 4 years ago, about five minutes after driving in to the park, we spotted a light gray(almost white) owel perched on a branch about five metres away - they say the best shots always get away.

Surely we deserve a close-up of the Ox picker? A little "Cow" like that wouldn't stop me...:?
