Splendid shots Jake! I've got to go with the vervet Monkey as my favorite. Great detail, pose and expression!! That SandGrouse is also well done...how close did you get?

The "un handsome" Eagle and the Thoughtful Monkey, are my favorites in a superb batch.

But the Eagle doesn't look that bad. Indeed "Handsome" would be an understatement. Looks like he's trying out for the job of King of the Sky.

And I hope the Monkey is looking forward to something better. That is some capture!

Hi Jake. We often see zebras with a line on their rump where the stripes no longer match and we assume that it was from a claw rake. And your point about all animals will ultimately get eaten by another one - that includes all the predators.

how long does it have before it dies of infection or get's eaten
It was looking after it quite well, it's tail swishing the flies away, and the cool dry weather should promote healing, but in the bush, who knows what lurks around the corner.
