Looking back

Before disappearing into the undergrowth, this leopard glanced back once more. It had been lying next to a termite mound when we appeared around the corner and unwittingly disturbed it (Mana Pools, Zimbabwe).

A mighty roar from a male lion

Turn up the volume and listen to the reverberating roar of a male lion in the early morning at Renosterkoppies in the Kruger National Park. It can be heard up to a distance of 6km and the doors of my car (situated only about 2m away) were vibrating while I was listening in awe.

Welcome rain

... but not for everyone. Looking rather subdued, this lion cub had selected a spot on the tarred road to lie down as the road probably still provided some warmth in spite of the continued drizzling. Cats just don't like water!

Big and small congregate at the waterhole

... when water becomes scarce. Tempers also tend to flare if the animals are really thirsty. In this case, however, the scene was very peaceful, each animal minding its own business.

Yearning for water

It has fortunately been raining in Kruger for the last two days. When I took this image in October, it was very dry everywhere and rivers were increasingly disappearing. This image shows one of the rivulets still flowing through the mighty bed of the Olifants river, the little calf trying its best to cool off in the shallow water.

One of the many good sightings we had during our recent visit to the Kruger National Park (South Africa). Note how cumbersome it is for the leopard to remove his prey from the tree:

On the look-out

Together with 2 siblings, this cheetah was on its way to mark territory and to look out for potential prey. I was lucky to be able to observe them as they walked alongside the road for quite some time before disappearing into the bushes.

An African long tailed or magpie shrike

The Magpie Shrike often performs co-operative breeding, with the breeding pair and some helpers, usually young birds from the previous brood.
The male drives away the rivals, but the boundaries of the territory are established with calls and songs. The Magpie Shrike feeds on arthropods, ants, termites, grasshoppers, mantises, millipedes and large grubs. It also takes lizards, mice and fruit and berries. Fresh and rotting meat is also eaten.

Watering a self-made boat in Zanzibar

I always marvel at the clever craftsmanship of African children. They don't have many toys, so they make the most ingenious ones themselves. I was watching this boy as he tried out his self-made sailing boat in the shallow waters of low tide. Even though the photo was shot with a cheap point-and-shoot at the time, it remains one of my favorite captures. For

African wild/painted dogs at play in Kruger

On my last 10-day visit to Kruger, I was lucky to see and observe three different packs of wild dogs. The dogs depicted below were members of a particularly active group, which went off into the thickets to hunt but returned again to pose for me soon thereafter :)

Fishing companions

On an early morning outing I observed these two fishing companions - a saddle-billed stork and a hammerhead - at the rapidly receding water of a waterhole. The saddle-billed stork was more successful but every so often a fish would escape his searching bill and then the hammerhead would pounce on it.

On the way to Sossusvlei

Two springbuck on their way to Sossusvlei, Namibia. It never ceases to amaze me, how these animals manage to survive in such barren and hostile surroundings. To me they are encouragement to continue under circumstances when life starts to appear rather "barren and hostile". Wishing you a good Sunday!

A young rhino on the run

In this case, the rhino was running away from another bigger rhino, which was bullying it. Both were kicking up much dust and picking up an amazing speed. Unfortunately the rhinos have not yet realized that their biggest enemies come in human form. Over 1200 rhinos were poached in South Africa alone last year, another rise of 20%. When and where will it all end?

A hyena at sunrise

scanning the horizon for the sight of some potential prey. Although hyenas are usually regarded to be scavengers, they are quite successful hunters in their own right, catching their prey with their teeth rather than the claws. Hyenas are primarily nocturnal animals, but sometimes venture from their lairs in the early-morning hours.

The Namaqua chameleon

has adapted in an amazing way to cope with desert conditions. It excretes salt from nasal glands to conserve water and digs holes to aid the thermoregulation. Change color helps to control temperature, becoming black in the cooler morning absorbs heat more efficiently than a lighter grey color to reflect light during the heat of the day. I found this one in the middle of the Namib desert.

Patterns in the dunes

The wind and animals leave patterns on the sand of the huge dunes lining the coast of Namibia.
I used to work in Walvis-Bay many years ago, traveling there from Swakopmund on a daily basis. It was fascinating to witness the artistic looking patterns of and on the dunes, only there for a short time before the elements and animals again created a new piece of art.

Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei (Namibia) is an area characterized by the highest sand dunes in the world. The dunes have colors of vivid pink-to-orange, a result of a high percentage of iron in the sand. The oldest dunes are those of a more intense reddish color.
