Every trip to Kruger National Park is filled with anticipation.
What will we see?
Will we finally see a Caracal or Porcupine?
Not sure if I want to see a kill.
Are we going to need another eight trips to see African Wild Dog? $$$$$$$
A 14 hour plane trip and 4 hours in a car makes a day trip rather expensive, so the pressure is on.
Rare sightings and “perfect” photos are on the wish list.
Cameras ready and waiting with empty SD cards.
Run a book on the first sighting.
If you choose Impala you are more than likely going to win this competition.
Our 2009 entry at Malelane defied the odds and our first sighting was a Hippo followed by a small herd of Buffalo a young Lion and an older Lion.
Cameras were at the ready……..
10.30pm is not the appropriate time to be flashing in a wild animals eyes.
Who knows what our sightings would have been had we entered the park before the gates closed at 6pm.
Maybe I should have listened more carefully to our road directions through Swaziland…perhaps even jotted them on paper……..Lost in the Kingdom of Swaziland is a story for another day.
Oh well we can start on the perfect shots tomorrow.
Good Morning visitors
Another day in paradise
Follow that Bum….sorry leader…
That is not my best angle
Does my Bum look big or not….
Nothing is private
A feathery wisp of cover
It’s all washed
Thank goodness for a long lens
Bum above eye level
I am still waiting for the “perfect” shot and only have to wait until June/July 2011.
Cannot wait to aim my lens into the soulful eyes of the misunderstood Hyaena or the burning calculating eyes of the Lion.
