A breeding herd of Buffalo (Syncerus caffer) on the move, kicking up dust, at dusk in Mana Pools National Park.  The herd would soon stop and the sentinel bulls would turn, defensively, but threateningly, to face the photographer, as if for their last portrait, before moving on with the herd.    The buffalo is a highly gregarious beast favouring large herds of both bulls and cows.  Older sedentary bulls normally leave the large herds and move in isolated groups of two or three animals.

The Verreaux’s Eagle-Owl (Bubo lacteus), a seldom-encountered bird, caught early one morning basking in the sun in Mopani forest near the Zambezi River.  The owl is distinguishable by its black face border and the pink eyelids.  This nocturnal, avian apex predator is found in much of Southern Africa, with possibly the exception of Namibia and the thick rain forest areas.  It has a preference for drier savannah and semi desert habitats.   Verreaux's owls feed mostly on small mammals including young monkeys, ground squirrels, rats and mice.  They breed as monogamous pairs and occupy stick constructed nests of other birds.

The often seen and more common helmeted guinea-fowl (Numida meleagris) takes a curious stroll towards the photographer, an unusual act of courage on its part. This bird is distributed throughout southern Africa and may even be seen in urban areas. It is a grassland and broadleaf woodland inhabitant. They eat both insects and small plants and are frequent visitors to water pans. Guinea-fowl are known to take refuge in trees and roost therein during the evening. These birds may be found in large flocks, but generally during the breeding season can be seen in solitary pairs.

An elderly lioness (Panthera leo) assisting another female in the pride protect her two cubs.   This is the lioness with the black eye, bush mascara around the one eye (probably an old injury), and part of the lady pride known to some as the “Spice Girls”.   The two females had separated from the main pride and had been moving towards a spot to lay-up with the cubs for the day when encountered.  It would seem they had not fed the night before.  This was a tense moment for both lioness and photographer.

Digital Wildlife Photographic Tips
Never ever believe you are invincible in the face of wild animals in the bush and be absolutely sure you are accompanied by a professional and seasoned guide when dealing with dangerous animals in what could be a potentially fatal environment.    Camera shake is especially evident in this type of photography... set that exposure to a very fast shutter speed.  This image was taken at too slow a shutter speed.  Constantly review your camera settings for those expected opportunities.

A skittish female herd of elephants (<em>Loxodonta africana<em>) skirting a water pan sense the presence of  a well camouflaged photographer by ‘air snorkelling’.  Elephants enjoy an incredible sense of smell and good hearing, while their eye sight is not perhaps their best sense.   The elephants had just finished drinking and bathing in the mid-day heat; and while moving off downwind quickly sensing a potential threat.  The bond between elephant cows and their young is very close. Mothers are extremely protective of their young and best avoided.

Young Lion the Morning After a Kill

This young male lion (Panthera leo) had been involved in the killing of a buffalo the previous evening and was well satisfied from the feed by the time the photographer stumbled upon him early the follow morning. Amazingly, the little beast was hyped-up for more action, even during the early hours, despite a full stomach, and later began the stalking of yet another passing buffalo herd in what would appear to be a purely gluttonous punt. The older cats seemed to take little interest in the saga. That impertinent look suggests perhaps the photographer might well have been a better victim for the morning amusement.
