This old fellow, scarred by many fights still had it in him to sire a litter of cubs, unfortunately just out of our sight, so therefore no shot of the cubs. He was very much in the shade, hidden by long grass, however he lifted his head a few times where I managedto get in a shot or two. I used my 420EX flash on the 100-400, and I think it did an OK job.

A Banded Mongoose - very shy creatures, this one stayed long enough to let me snap a shot or two

A Crested Barbet, cousin to the Black-Collared barbet featured in my last post. He makes a sound like a muted mechanical alarm clock that rings for a minute or more.

Lastly [just for fun] -

A road sign on our trip - 10 Km should be fair warning to stop


{Yes, those are bullet holes in the sign, a favourite past-time of a certain group of our population }
