This Chacma baboon has woken up and is feeling the dreamy feeling of not having a leopard on his tail [maybe ??!!]

Their incisors are longer than a lion's and can do huge damage to humans, in fact, a few deaths have been reported recently, incurred by marauding baboons.


I've just calibrated my monitor with a "Spyder", and I would appreciate it if you guys would give some feed-back on color and contrast. It looks quite different on my side, and will take some getting used to.

Many regards from SA !!

I was happy to catch this Nile Crocodile "stepping out" - one doesn't often see them walking on land. He's a mean sized fella as well !!

These two teenage Hippos are testing their strength against each other.

A White-Bellied sunbird doing what sunbirds do - A very happy chirping fellow

I was quite pleased with the shot - They move very quickly, there wasn't much light, and I see my shutter speed was at 1/30,the 100-400 IS doing quite a good job.

A Red billed Wood-hoopoe with his "catch" in his bill - these are really beautiful birds, and they travel in groups, making quite a loud "cackle" - Their Zulu name is translated as "The laughing women"

{I probably need to do a bit of work on his bill, there are a few blown highlights}

Lastly, an Iguana tasting the air for danger or food - also quite a large chap [maybe 5 feet?]

Wonderful series, again, Jake. Color and contrast seem good to me (especially on the last three).
