The focus on the subject is great!

The other warthog in the background is pleasingly blurred while the subject seems to be in my computer screen.

The tusks, nose, mane — a fine image.

Thank you so much for this warthog update from Chobe.

Bristler's Brother

 

Photographed at 8:47 am on 15 February, 2017 in Sabi Sands Game Reserve, South Africa, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 125, 1/500 sec., f/2.8, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

At the Tydon Bush Camp there was concern that heavy rain might affect the morning game drive. Happily, that didn't occur, therefore sightings were plenty in comfortable circumstances.

 

This male warthog sauntered by a track with the insouciance of a jaded boulevardier. It was as if the safari vehicle wasn't even there. Who knows? Maybe we were invisible.

Samburu's warthogs aren't skittish. Their easygoing attitude facilitates portraits.
