This little fella was part of the herd that converged on us in the previous post - with something so cute, it'sno wonder they are so protective over their babies. It couldn't be more than a few days old, and yet running with the herd !

A Spoonbill on a flyby [very slightly out of focus, he caught me by surprise as I was focusing on some other creature]

A Spotted Hyaena tucking into the remains of a giraffe that some lion had taken out a few days prior to us arriving on his scene [pity we missed the lion :cry:]

Jake, all that I (& my wife, also) can say is "WOW!!!" Just stunning shots! It may be no big deal to get pictures that these in Africa but here in suburban USA, these captures are magnificent! I cannot pick a favorite but my wife's fav is the sunset! Like I said in the other thread ...NG needs you!!!:cool:
