Again, we’re blessed with amazing pictures from Africa – enjoy!
I had the pleasure of feeding a lion cub a warm bottle of milk, like a baby, when I was an early teen and traveling with my dad on his work trip in Africa. Just an amazing experience, but now I’d rather see them from afar and appreciate their wildness.
We’ll wrap up Le Comte’s submissions next Tuesday.
Today, pictures from valued commenter Le Comte de Monte Cristo, fka Edmund Dantes.
They hunt around sundown and relax during the day
This was another tour vehicle – it shows how close we were
This guy was glorious
She was a favorite of mine
This was the leader of another pride
Some shots are just perfect
He just came out to stand…
He’s moving, as a rhino has come into view.
Rhinos and lions are not inclined to share the same space, and what the rhino wants, it gets.
The lighting was perfect for this frame
Every sunset was stunning
This guy was a little shy
This is a termite mound – this leopard is using it as a lookout
The tail may be longer than this youngster
They were having too much fun
Thank you so much Le Comte de Monte Cristo, fka Edmund Dantes, do send us more when you can.
