"Smiling Leopard"

This photo was the result of 7 years of searching for leopards in the Kalahari desert. It was also included in my personal favourite selection of 2016 on my blog: http://bit.ly/Morkel2016

"Friend and Foe at the Waterhole"

A pride of lions hogs a spring on the Etosha pan in +Etosha National Park, and in the summer heat the zebras can't resist the urge to come and slake their thirst.

"Family Frame"

I captured this moment late one afternoon in the Mara Triangle in Kenya. Lion cubs always provide interesting moments, whereas the adults are often lazing around and resting.

"Killer in the Making"

A young Spotted Hyaena in the Kruger National Park.
Many people believe them to be full-time scavengers when they are very efficient pack hunters in their own right and can dominate the ecosystem in areas where lion presence is thin.

This one is still in the "cute" stage, though...

"Dawn King"
African Lion
Etosha National Park, Namibia

This is one of 7 photos of mine that were highly commended at the BioPhoto Contest held in Budoia, Italy, over the weekend. I photographed this lion at dawn from a remote research hide in Etosha, at a focal length of just 200mm.
