Taken in the Serengeti (Namiri Plains).

Masai Mara in November 2011   Had the luck to photograph a caracal an early morning, on my first safari-trip.   I´m using a Nikon D3 and Nikon 600 mm.      

Well.. it´s not a cat but it is very cat-like. Some sort of crossbreed between a cat and a mongoose. The one and only species of this kin... FOSSA I think I put a picture on it in "one pic a day"-t

Some lovely photos of those harder to see little cats. I've only had the one caracal sighting which I didn't do justice with images. Processed this one as a b&w as the washed out colour was horrible. Best I could do, still hoping for a better sighting. Photographed last year in the Mara.

Do the cats have to be completely wild? Walt was pretty frisky as a kitten :)

Caracal family from Masai Mara - it was very late in the evening and it was drizzling, so I had to pump up the ISO:

This Serval with a hare is from Masai Mara - too bad she never once looked towards the camera after getting the hare:

the caracal was from last year but the caracal is from mid August. There is one female (near Double Cross) with three cubs. Some people had found her den and she was being seen regularly for a few days. A lioness tried to dig the serval cubs out from their den (in a termite mound) and the serval mother and cubs disappeared the next day, probably changed their den. We could not find her again in the next 15 days. However the serval picture posted here is of another female that we had found near the Talek River. I am sure you will find some servals - I saw four different ones in August. However no caracals in the 4 weeks that I was there and did not even hear of someone seeing caracals.

Taken yesterday. One of 2 young Servals, this one was calling for its mother to return from her hunting foray and climbing the tree to get a better look out into the plain!

I use a Canon 500D, usually with a 100-400mm lens. As I said in my intro, I've been very lucky - but there's still so much more out there just waiting for me to visit. :D
