You may have missed the carmine bee eater in flight, but your stationary shot is vibrant. The silhouette against the purple sky is a great shot.

I did indeed madaboutcheetah! (Didn't get to witness an impressive bull Lechwe kill though!)
When was your last visit?
I saw 2 sets, the resident big boys at Kwara - there used to be 3 but one got a wounded leg and dissapeared and now there are only 2 - and also another pair at Lagoon. The pair at Lagoon were newcomers I believe, two brothers but still small and slim (even by Cheetah standards) compared to Kwara's bigger, beefier pair. Can't have been over a year since leaving their mother I'd suggest. Do you know anything more about them, as a Cheetah fanatic? :)

Hi - yes, they are a new coalition that traverse a wide territory covering Duma tau, Selinda, lebala and lagoon. We tried to find them in October when I was last there - no success. We did see the resident territory holders though the 3 big boys.

 

Thanks a lot, Lynn...

The photo of the jeep with the people, the dogs and that light is spectacular, Hari. Very, very atmospheric. I can picture that one in my office :)

Thanks for the info! Really enjoy how the smaller, more personalised camps actually know their animals so well.

@@madaboutcheetah I notice Africa Geographic has announced the winners of Kwando's Photography competition.

 

http://blog.africageographic.com/africa-geographic-blog/photography/introducing-kwandos-photography-competition-winners/

 

I have to say I find the images featured very underwhelming. Not a patch on some of your own photos. I can only assume that you have no interest in entering.

Great pictures all the way through - not surprisingly the cheetah - your enthusiasm shines through

Also love to see the dogs, and your bird shots

Lebala in April/May.

 

Wonderful for cloud formations and blue sky, quite poor game viewing in my experience - still sometimes you get lucky.

Well, I'm afraid I have been terribly unproductive all day. The blame rests squarely with @@madaboutcheetah for taking up all my time with this amazing set of images. I'm glad you bumped this thread and gave me an excuse to see it all. Your hard work tracking the cheetahs really pays off!
