Vultures are a pretty common sight in the African wild, and they tend to gather where carnivores are present, being predominantly scavengers of carrion. The Hooded Vulture (Necrosyrtes monachus) is...

Just a different point of view about your liberal policies stifling liberal rights.
Picture by Dan Hodgson - @darkroom There was a huge flash of whimpering, egalitarian, liberal sentiment following Donald Trump’s infamous little quip about barring Muslims entry into the United States. The bigot, how dare h...

Mana Pools seemed to be the setting for turf wars recently with the arrival of a new male, accompanied by a small pride in an area, once the reserve of others. This lion (Pathera leo) seemed overly...

Having too much lens can sometimes be more of a hindrance than a bonus, and this was the case with this pachyderm’s image. This elephant (Loxodonta africana) is a bit of a delinquent still, which is why some call him JD, but he has mellowed over the years. He allowed photographers to watch him feeding on a few juicy branches of a Faidherbia albida (previously Acacia)

Occasionally, the photographer is presented with the perfect opportunity, the golden hour, well lit subject with an amazingly unobtrusive background.  How could anyone help but not take this shot.   These elephants (Loxodonta africana) were grazing on a sand bank in the Zambezi River: their purpose was not so much for food, but more for the salts or minerals (more specifically sodium), apparently deficient in their diet or, according to some, roughage to assist digestion found in consumption of the sandy lome.  Some call this geophagy, which more rightly belongs to clay consumption.   The trait is more common in female elephants, following fecal-sodium loss in pregnancy and lactation.

One of the photographer's great pleasures in life is sitting at an isolated water hole in the middle of a vast Mopani forest just watching animals arriving to take water, and then playing about the...

This is an interesting discussion and I would love to hear form people on the subject.

Just a quick appeal to my friends who have an interest in conservation of African wildlife, please consider a quick visit to the web site of Friends of Hwange Trust. The Trust is doing excellent work, principally trying to sustain the supply of water to the many pans in the Hwange park, which as many will know has little natural ground water. This project is in desperate need of funding and the Trust is looking for donations, no matter how small. If you have a few dollars to spare, please contribute to this really good cause.

This lioness (Panthera leo) was lagging behind her apparently hungry pride on an early morning stroll, stopping occasionally perhaps to observe the hunting potential in the hope of a bite before settling in for the day. Usually the males of the pride lag behind, and clearly this movement of lions was transitory rather than a hunting expedition. The pride was moving towards a nearby thicket to rest up.

Quite a common sight and often captured on camera, these two male Impala (Aepyceros melampus) bulls are squabbling over territory, which activity is generally limited to a couple of months in the y...
