Well, thank you, Game Warden

 

Also, thank you to you, Hari.

 

I just want to say that this could not have been achieved without Spencer's competence and knowledge. Indeed when I asked him how many time did we had to wait for the warthogs to emerge from the burrow, he answered between 1 1/2 and 2 hours. They came out after 1hour 35'. He also positioned the car at the right place. Thanks a lot, Spencer!!!!

I agree, spectacular shots; I can't even dream of seeing something like this. Thank you for sharing.

 

Scenes as this should have their very own page so that we can just return and take a peek at will :D --when the urge strikes for" something out of the ordinary"!

Thanks a lot for your comments. Like you, before this, I, also, could not even dream of being the witness of such a "once in a lifetime" sighting, and then after a certain number of trips, it happened. On the other hand, there was, on the car, a young Irish couple on honeymoon. It was their first trip, and probably their last, in Africa. I had the feeling that they were not really conscious of the chance they had to see this.

I continue to be amazed at the photos.

And I just love the moment when the hyena arrives in the frame.

That's an incredible sequence of shots. The hyena was poking its nose in at one time - was that what interrupted the leopard's attack? Still, an amazing sighting.

Thank you for your comments.

Indeed, that is what stopped the leopard's action just when it was about to give the mortal blow!

This is a winning series of photos without a doubt! The unknown fate of the warthog and piglets is the unsettled mystery.

@@Bush dog This series still stands out for me as one of the most amazing sequences I've seen and you were in the right place/right time to capture it perfectly.
