This giraffe shot was taken in the "Golden hour", just before sunset - She's busy having her eyebrows plucked:lol:

Whilst on giraffes - this one was having a break, onedoes not often see them lying down.I should have used a polarizing filter, the sky was perfect for it, instead I settled for doing a gradient quick mask on the top of the shot and adjusted the levels of the sky [The Polarizer would have done a much better job]

These two Impala ewes were extremely alert, snorting and staring intently at something they sensed in the bush - We looked around for a predator, but nothing was evident [to us anyway] - the sun had already set, so i used iso 800.

A Redbilled Wood-hoopoe - A question about cropping - I tend to always crop a shot using the original aspect ratio of the shot.What do you guysthink aboutdisregarding the original aspect and cropping to suit the particular shot [as with this one]?

A Golden-Tailed Woodpecker - It's not a marvellous shot, but I thoughtI would include it so you guys can see what our Woodpeckers look like

Yup, your shots are always excellent. I like seeing different creatures, too bad I can't plan a trip to Africa, I would love to get some shots like that. Keep up the good work!
