Yesterday evening I took these pictures of a strange-looking bird. I am not certain, but I think it is a amelanistic form of a Dark-capped Bulbul. Any other thoughts? Thanks in advance for the input.
I love this one!
The best hour for wildlife photographers to take images is the last hour of the day. And if the bush models cooperate then the images can be very special. This young Thanda South Pride Lioness was at the right place at the right time and looking the right way!

The Big Five are by far the most photographed and talked about of all African animals. But it is really the Lions, Leopards, Elephants and Rhinos which get the major share of the fame. Well, this blog shows ten images to portray the fifth Big Five, the most magnificent (and dangerous) bovine in its natural environment, the Cape Buffalo. Enjoy these Thanda Buffalo pictures!
A strange title for a blog?
Yes, but these images explain it all …
I really enjoy these unusual sightings – remarkably uncommon 🙂
This is the last of the ten promised Zimanga photography blogs.
The image was taken at Bhejane Hide, Zimanga Private Game Reserve’s evening-light-reflection-pool-hide. More Zimanga images at https://sperka.info/2015/07/22/reflection-plus-zimanga/
I hope you have enjoyed these ten blogs with images taken at these very special photography hides.
Watching Africa’s iconic large cats – Lion, Leopard and Cheetah – is always a special treat on any safari. But these three sighting were even more exciting than usual. First we saw Thanda’s dominant male Lion mating with the oldest female of the Mduna pride. Then we observed a young Cheetah female doing what Cheetahs ‘never do’, climbing up a tree trunk. And last but not least we sat with a relaxed and very beautiful male Leopard for quite a while, in broad day light!
A pleasure for the Thanda guests and great picture opportunities for all Wildlife photographers among them!
