Hello Anna,
Nice archive image. Quite a young animal depicted. Zebras are beautiful animals and I'm happy each time you I spot them; so thanks for sharing your image!

Hi Natley,
Impressive cat you managed to capture here. It seems to be in an excellent condition. It shows almost a sphinx kind of attitude...
Well done and TFS

Hi Anna,

First of all it's well done as there's an excellent focus and no harsh sunlight. You can view the metallic in its blacks and there are no blown out highlights as well. Great.

Secondly my first thought about this image was: so close. I spotted this bird one or twice in KNP. It was too far away though. I read you coped with that issue in your note very well. I do have to say that Pretoriuskop wasn't on my itinerary though.

I'm visiting the Kruger National Park this year and once again I asked and received interesting tips from Loot. I want to thank you for that. I just started a new blog about KNP http://annickvanderschelden.blogspot.com/. It's called The way to Crooks Corner.

Kind regards and TFS,
Annick

Hello Anna,
Always great to be back in KNP through your images. Of course I know the Blacksmith Lapwing. Especially in terms of photography:-). Concerning the former I could state that the easy part is the focusing as the bird is slightly bigger than some of his feathered counterparts and secondly the plover isn't too shy either which offered me lot of opportunities to get the job done.
The difficulty might be the black versus white areas resulting in respectively clipped blacks or blown highlights. 04:27 and some clouds might be helpful in order to achieve the right dynamic range:-).
Thanks for sharing this wonderful plover as well as bringing me back into this wilderness.

Hi Anna,
Thanks for the Christmas wishes through this Sunset Dam sundown.
When I was at this particular spot I remember there was a giraffe at the other end of the dam. A croc in the water a few meters away from the car. Suspicious impalas were drinking to the right and weavers were buildings there nests in a tree twenty meters or so in the water. Near the tree were hippos. Harry:-) was fishing and there were several other bird species to spot as well.
As you have to be in the camp at six I wasn't able to be at such a spot during sunset. Great you had the opportunity to fully enjoy the sunsetting event at the Sunset Dam...
Well done...
All the wishes...

It's a pity it's such a skulker; might be difficult though with such an impressive beak.
