Thanks for the kind words @@pomkiwi and @@TonyQ. We were particularly fortunate with baby critters this past "El Nino" January in Kenya.

I have fond memories of 2006, Mike - I was at LK right at the end of August that year! I think I saw a Leopard and cub too with Doctor!

I love all these photos; I have to say that even the baby hippo is appealing. Ugly babies simply aren't very common; however, one major exception is crocodiles.

Hari, it's indeed the same cub that you saw with Doctor.

I'm posting pictures of the mother, in 2006 and in 2009, on "Show us your leopards". When I came back in 2011, they told me that, in the meanwhile, it was dead.

It won't be long before these young Barn Swallows leave the nest. It's already looking a bit crowded

Young Oryx

 

Photographed at 5:35 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.

 

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

 

My limited safari experience had never brought me face-to-face with a young oryx before. Accordingly, I was particularly interested in oryx, who calmly looked towards us.

 

It wasn't feeding much at the time, unlike the older oryx nearby. The long legs were especially impressive, in relation to its body.

So many birds had chicks and young during my recent visit to the Okavango Delta.
