    It's great to see these animals in a realistic environment, as opposed to how most of us are forced to shoot them...behind bars or wire.

    Damn you are one lucky chap. I went to Kenya 15 years ago. The only two animals I was dying to see where: a leopard and a wild dog (not hyena). I saw piles of animals but didn't see either of them. You on the other hand, not only saw them, but got great pictures of them. Lucky, lucky, lucky....

    This series is awesome & inspiring! I like 'em all! Did you sign on for a safari trip or were there for some other reason (such as a job)? Either way, you are very lucky!! Wish I could go on a trip like that.

    Very nice, birdstrike.
    But they could be a lot better if you did some post processing. Auto levels comes to mind.

    Thank you, thank you. It would be great if someone could pay me to do this, but it is all vacation time and personal expense. I had 200K British Airways miles to blow and business class to Botswana seemed the best way to do it.

    I liked it so much that I'm planning a repeat trip for July 2008. This time I should have enough miles to do the entire trip in First :)

    Thanks W. I've just started playing with Adobe Lightroom. I'll use these as test cases.
