I love the Pretstap zoo walk in the National Zoological Garden in Pretoria that is organized every months by the Friends of the Zoo. It starts early, before the normal opening times. On Saturday we were able to watch the sun rise in a splendid orange sky. The early light makes photography so much more interesting than the flat, harsh light of the mid day. Also, the predators are usually quite active during this time. This white tiger had just finished drinking and was now starting at his neighbor in the next enclosure. What a magnificent animal!

The beautiful leopard at Pretoria Zoo has just finished its meal of a whole chicken – but I feel he’s asking me for more!
