These two big bull elephants [probably 10,000kg of muscle]walked straight down the road towards us, not budging left or right.... We decided we would have to do the moving, which was in reverse gear !

An Impala ram andewe taking a little leap. These animals can jump 12ft high with ease, unfortunately I have never been able to capture one, although it was nice to catch these two in a sort of flow of movement.

An Emerald spotted dove, with it's spots nicely showing - not always easy to get the sunlight in the right place to show off the spots, they are quite a shy bird

I managed to capture this Tawny eagle as it took off after drinking at a waterhole.

Well, you're both raising the bar and making the rest of us insecure.

The waterbuck seems OOF and the rest seem lacking in contrast but that could be me.

One hell of a feeling looking at those 'tiny' elephants I wonder the feeling you get seeing 'em coming at you.
