    The response better be good so you will post more of these! Wow. They are all great! Good to see the animals in the wild, and you saw them being themselves really, wow, those wild dogs eating the kudu .. pretty graphic. Not too bad for me, but ... yes. Nature!

    Really good.
    I do love the light in the "Pride of Lions" photo!
    And the action in the first with the elephants. Wow. They came right up to where you were!

    With most of these i used a telron 70mm-300mm. We got really close, and as my friend is a qaulified bush ranger i got out of the vehicle alot and then walked towards the animals. This was the expiernce of a lifetime!!!
