That last image is a tour-de-force of wildlife photography!

Birds, swimming, an elephant, four giraffe, and as if that wasn't enough, a pair of jackals!

How do you do it? Consistently such terrific safari photographs.

Many thanks.

Female Nyala from Behind

Photographed on 2 October, 2015 at 5:24 pm in Leopard Hills Private Game Reserve, Sabi Sands, South Africa with an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 200mm f/2.8L II telephoto lens.

ISO 125, 1/400 sec., f/2.8, 200mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

****************************************************************************************************

~ The vertical white flank stripes and assorted spots on this shy female nyala distract from the plain reality that this image shows her backside, albeit with due modesty.

She was in a small family group near the track. While she didn't walk away, she turned away, affording this view.

Love all the "bum pics"
I took lots some few years back printed them put them in frames and put them on the toilet walls

I got the idea after I saw that I had mostly bum pictures because I always had clients and they had to get all their pictures first before I could take some and often then the animal did not have the front side towards us.
I will see if I can find them somewhere and show you.

OOUCH!

A predator has clearly had a nibble. Lion or hyena?

The wound was clean and the zebra was with others and behaving normally, would more than likely heal.

Grevy's Zebra from Behind

 

Photographed at 5:33 pm on 1 October, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 100, 1/2000 sec., f/3.2, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

 

****************************************************************************************************

 

When we encountered a sizable herd of Grevy's Zebra @Anthony Gitau was especially animated, as he hadn't seen any for months. There return in numbers was a positive sign.

 

They were often lively, running in circles, chasing around without ever seeming aggressive. In this image they're temporarily turned away from the camera lens.

We are long overdue a new bum or two. So what have you got to show us?

Two rear-end images involving lions (unfortunately not completely bums) with stories.

 

The first is a lioness in the Mara slinking away from a buffalo kill:

 

DSC_5414.jpg.edf89680c48c48016ae65d2fb202c4cf.jpg

 

The reason being that a very assertive cackle of hyenas hd taken possession and were not looking to surrender their bounty

The second is again a lion (or more accurately a female and cubs) again in the Mara.  We'd been watching them for a while when they suddenly diasappeared into a ditch:

I seem to be becoming something of an expert on Giant Kingfisher bums

They would certainly much rather show me their bums than their fronts

They weren't exactly showing me their bums but that was the view they gave me
