A young elephant sprays water into his mouth using his trunk.
A herd of elephants is approaching a watering hole on an overcast day in Pilanesberg National Park. One is testing the air with her trunk, while others mill around, waiting for her approval to go to the water. An impressive sight!
A young elephant bull on a black background. I know it’s not for everyone, this style of low key editing called ‘black photo’, but it’s what I love. It brings out dramatic contrasts between dark and light in an almost chiaroscuro style.
A great sighting and a great photo doesn’t always have to be a lion or a leopard. This little squirrel was so cute, sitting on a rock. Lesson learnt: Enjoy the small things in life!
It’s a wet morning, but this male lion has nothing to complain about, really. His belly is very full after his pride caught a zebra. A male lion needs about 7 kilos of meat per day to stay in good shape, but when a kill is available they will eat up to 30 kilos in one session. This male looks like it did just that…

Looking forward to the photographic opportunities that the new year will bring. Happy 2020 everyone!
