Pics that will never be published in photo books

Recommended Posts

A lot of great pics...and a lot of amusing ones too!
Though, I think it's a damn shame a lot of the bloodier ones would be balked at in a photo book. The comments made about the wild dog kill in Life Story apply here I think. Death and graphic violence are not only a garunteed and essential part of nature, and covering it up is just ridiculous and leaving out half the story, but often fadcinating and tense moments of animal behaviour rarely seen.
I also swear on many safaris I've been on, a lot of people want to see a kill!

It seems the contents of a Kudu's stomach is tasty! or maybe the stomach itself!

Nice Thread. It made me go through some very old pictures and relive several safaris.

Young Female getting lucky with a dead Buffalo. The good thing is that the camera can not record the stench!

@@mvecht - Wow! Impressive, graphic, dramatic pictures, looks like a packed trip to Kwando! Can we expect a full trip report? Especially of the Joubert-esque lion vs hyaena?

Hi Big Dog and Game Warden

I am off to Japan/Korea on a business trip later this morning and will probably not have time to post for the next week or so.

Big Dog: I have been to Kwando four times from 2004 - 2007. A combination of excellent guiding and good luck gave excellent sightings, including nine kills.

There should be a trip report from 2007 and maybe 2006 in this forum but I will have to look for them.

As mentioned in a previous post I have been away from Safaritalk for a few years but now I am definitely back.

More pics will be added to various posts when I am back from Japan.

What's the story on the zebra, was it killed by a poacher? We helped a park ranger in Serengeti look for poacher's traps and found a zebra in a snare. It was a very sad moment as it probably suffered during the ordeal.

These were taken at the Dullstroom Bird of Prey Rehabilitation Centre. An excellent venue well worth a visit, they host a "flying show" with lots of interesting information delivered in a fun and inter-active way twice daily most days of the week, using un-rehabilitatable birds.

 

This particular incident is a "competition" between bird and handler. If the Secretary bird makes it back to the cage before the handler, it gets a medium-sized chicken. If it doesn't, it only gets a small portion. However, if it kicks the handler on the way past, it gets two.

 

It seems to undertsand perfectly!

My picture of an elephant probably won't make it into any photobooks because of the safari vehicle in the background.

At first glance, I was quite happy with this photo. Upon better review, it only made the selection for a slide show of our first safari in Tanzania after cropping.

We spent enough time with this giraffe in Tarangire that the unfortunately-timed shot shown in the first frame could be left out in favor of the second.
