Interesting choice and great picture! The way these animals organize their hunting is quite impressive. I believe they have the highest kill rate/attempt of all African animals (and maybe in the world for all I know).

Hi Eldar, your right, amazing hunters, unfortunately the 2nd most endangered predator in Africa.

I am often asked, "what is your favourite Animal to Photograph", Leopards spring always to mind immediately, but when I consider first, I would say Wild Dog, there's just something amazingly intelligent in the way these Animals operate, they look wonderful as well, especially like this, Dawn Light, almost floating @ f/2.8.

1Dx 400f/2.8, Shot @ f/2.8 & 1/640th ISO200

I think retired when I see this shot .
1Dx  600mm

I often feel a bit like this myself, weathered, too stupid to get out of the Snow (Or Rain/Dust/quick young people on a sidewalk), leaning to one side, needing support, it's called getting Old I think.

Thanks for all the info EML i use ps cc and lr5 too but will need to have a look at nik software for sure :)

Hi Bornshooter, if your not already using it, also look at On One's Perfect Photo Suite, currently at 7, next month they release the new Suite 8, my view is these Guys are getting close to being a Giant Killer, only software I can see that "may" become an Adobe replacement.

Me too ;)

Hi Dylan777, have been reading this thread with interest, I had a Leica M9, several Leica Lenses, sold the lot after about 12 Months, just didn't like the M9, mostly because of the rangefinder system, my eyes just aren't up to it, but I disliked the poor menu system (1950's Camera look I like, 1950's tech I dislike), pricing is ridiculous, but, and there's always a but, I liked the feel of the Camera, the size and the Look.

So, I've been looking at the Fuji X-Pro 1, but I may wait for the Pro 2 which I believe is an early 2014 release (and hope it's FF), could be a decent system, smallish, lot of great 3rd Party lenses available, discreet (compared to the 1Dx), takes a reasonable Image, up to date tech from the Japanese, all round looks like a great walk about Camera (which the 1Dx, again, is not).

Interested in any comments from anyone that has the Pro 1 and normally shoots DSLR.

I'm also glad Dylan777 that you qualified who (your wife) was the owner of the new Pink Camera Cover   ::)

And it's nice to know others have the NGAS (New Gear Acquisition Syndrome), I understand it's hereditary, no cure known.

I was trying to get to Botswana a few years ago, but never made it. I've been wary of Kenya for a few years, both for political reasons and because of how touristy I've heard it has become.

I was in the Serengeti (Tanzania) in March, Masai Mara (Kenya) in April, without a doubt the Migration was better viewed on the Serengeti side, quieter, less hectic, less People.

The actual Mara River Crossing is probably better from the Kenyan Side (More Options), but you then have to contend with a lot more vehicles competing for the same spots, it can sometimes spoil the experience.

Now, with the latest ongoing drama in Nairobi, we have Terrorism to contend with, in future I'll work on fly in/fly out same day where Nairobi is concerned, I'de suggest only a matter of time and Dar Es Salam will have the same sorts of issues in this regard.

Very nice! I am going to Masai Mara and Serengeti next year. I hope I get a chance to get some shots of a leopard to.

Hi Eldar, Masai Mara on the Kenyan side & The Serengeti on the Tanzania side aren't Leopard Country as much as other areas (But the absolute best for The Migration), having said that I did see a couple Leopards in Tanzania last trip in the Serengeti.

For straight up Leopards the best area I've found is Londolozi & Mala Mala in northern South Africa, Mombo in the Northern part of The Okavango Delta in Botswana is excellent as well.

Good luck on your Leopard spotting & Imaging, my favourite Predator.

Keep an eye on the current Activity in Nairobi, unfortunately it's probably a taste of what's to come.

Nice shot. That rhino is intently eyeing that (wasp?), thinking don't sting me there ;D

Or, "Ha!! Fool, that hides as thick as a Rhino's"

I reckon getting a shot like that is about the only thing that would make getting so close to a rhino worth it.

Your right, which is why I added the 1.4x so I could shoot with a little breathing room, for me, not the Rhino.
