Great pictures! What type of equipment did you use?
I am a learning (struggling) photographer and am always listening for tips. I currently use a Nikon D100, and usually mount a VR 70-200mm with a doubler. Great results, but a lot to learn.

Hi Johan,

Once again, a very nice selection of photos.

One thing, did the lioness get that smallish antelope, it really looks as if she should not have missed? Hard to believe that the antelope does not see her, but I have seen an male impala also look right at a sitting cheetah and not identify that shape as a cheetah, without the movement or the smell.

Kind regards,

Luckily the puku got away. Everyone thought this would be hard to miss but at the last moment, it took off. It seemed to us that the lion was quite unexperienced.


According to Steve, it was a warthog.

More stunners, to be sure! It is hard to believe the lioness missed that meal! The leopard and cheetahs in this series are especially nice. Thanks once again for sharing!
