In awe of the world..

A young cheetah gets a few minutes of rest in the morning sun.. They see everything at this age, every blade of grass that moves every gust of air.. They seem to be figuring out how it all works.

Lapping it up..

A special encounter with the boys one morning.. They had picked up on the scent of the new female (far left) and were looking all over for her..

This sighting was after a few anxious moments of fighting and chasing as the boys tried to introduce themselves to her.. Things settled down and they had a quick drink at a nearby water hole.

Mothers comfort..

One of Jikas cubs sits tightly next to her, a little startled by our presence.
This was in the early days, before they adopted Jikas relaxed approach to humans.
They learn everything from her;

Between the ages of two and three months, cubs begin to accompany their mother on the hunt, though at first they appear to be merely along for the ride.Often  the cubs reveal that cheetahs are nearby by walking forward or even chase each other while the antelope still have their heads up.
But when the cubs get a little older - between eight months and a year - mom releases about a third of the prey she catches, and the cubs at least kill it themselves from time to time.
Developing those skills that have helped the cheetah survive for 3~4 million years, Longer than any other big cat on Earth today.

At dawn.

A female elephant stands on the dam wall as the sun sets in Zululand.. The main dam wall allows for some great perspectives and angles.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

"The pale stars were sliding into their places. The whispering of the leaves was almost hushed. All about them it was still and shadowy and sweet. It was that wonderful moment when, for lack of a visible horizon, the not yet darkened world seems infinitely greater—a moment when anything can happen, anything be believed in."

A young lioness keeps one eye open while the pride naps in a patch of grass.

These cats have no problem sleeping 16-20 hours a day.

Elephants at the dam. The first shot is a young bull having some fun in the water. I wanted to try capture some movement so i slowed down the shutter and did a bit of panning.. Not bad but not quite there yet.. 2nd shot is of a large female standing on the dam wall, little did i know that this female would give birth 2days later. -------------------------------------------------------------------- "For the herds of wild elephants show no resentment when domesticated animals join them. They have none of that herd instinct directed against the stranger that one finds in cattle, in small boys and among many grown-up men. This tolerance is just one of the things about elephants which makes one realise they are big in more ways than one." ~ Lt.-Col. J. H.

Magic memories..

A throw back to an awesome morning spent with these guys.
We searched for them hi and low, and eventually it payed off..

We spent the rest of the morning following the cheetah boy's as they marked their territory and drank water.. We followed them till they came to rest on a raised mound in the open.
Being able to get out and flat on the ground really makes for some great angles.

Young pretender..

The looks of a future king, but the heart and mind of cub.
This young male lion starting to develop a beautiful mane - - 
the size and coloration of the mane serves as a signal to other lions about the male’s fitness.
By conducting experiments with life-size replica lions - the Serengeti lion project determined that females prefer males with darker manes.
Darker manes also take a physical toll by raising body temperatures, meaning that only the “fittest” males can grow the most attractive manes. The length and darkness of the manes also signal information to other males about a lion’s fighting ability.

"Courage is poorly housed that dwells in numbers; the lion never counts the herd that are about him, nor weighs how many flocks he has to scatter."
