A Cheetah Study!

This evening we had a beautiful Cheetah sighting on Thanda Safari. These are a few of the images I took of these incredible creatures. Have a good weekend!

The pictures were taken with a Canon EOS R6 Camera and a Canon EF 1/500 f/4 L lens.

Angry Bird!

This Yellow-billed Hornbill had a very serious expression when it took its afternoon sand bath!

Looking for the ladies!

Yesterday morning our two dominant male Lions were scanning a valley and following a scent trail in search for two young females. We had tracked the them for a few kilometers when we found them on top of a hill displaying themselves in all their ‘majesty’. But they never caught up with the ladies on that morning.

Good bye …

As we approached the Thanda Safari gate this morning one of our Lioness just passed the gate. This was a very special ‘good bye’ surprise for our guests after their three day stay with many exciting sightings.

First pictures …

… taken with my new Canon EOS R6 camera…

This afternoon I went on the first game drive with my newest and first mirrorless camera. It has amazing capabilities in terms of low-light-photography and speed. With a special adapter I can use all my lenses (as the f/4 500mm shown in one of the pictures). I am working on fine-tuning the setup which is key for motion photography.

I am looking forward to producing many interesting wildlife shots with my new tool!
