Africa is not for sissies...some of my favourite wildlife images

 I get asked often what my favourite animal is to photograph...my answer is usually "the one in front of my lens"...
 This young brown hyena was trying to drag this elephant leg bone away from our prying eyes...and failed.
 This Leopard mom and her cubs were very relaxed and we were able to spend almost an hour with them
 A rather unusual Black Springbok and its normally coloured mom...the colouring is causes by a recessive gene. Springboks also come in White(not albino) and caramel(the rarest of the colour variants)
 Zebras are one of my favourite animals to photograph...
I was lucky enough to be present when the Giraffe mom introduced this day-old baby to the rest of the family...
 more zebras...
 a young Brown Hyena pup...
 this young Elephant tries his best to look menacing...
 and this lion cub made sure that he did not stray too far from mom
as a prey animal, I would also looked suprised if I looked up and saw what looked like a gun barrel pointing at me!
YES I AM THE KING OF THE JUNGLE...and I dare you to contradict me!

my web albums will allow you access to many more wildlife and travel images
