Wonderful way of sharing a wonderful experience.  I could see myself in your shoes perfectly, Vossie, I even got a little of the adrenelin rush from it.  Aren't photos great at preserving memories! :)

Stunning work! Really beautiful shots. Great demonstration of the trusty old 100-400mm lens, too!

Nicely done Vossie, Serengeti & Masai Mara, doesn't come much better, I agree, trips of a lifetime.

Lets forget about the brand name of the camera used ... coz its about the joy of photography in the wild. Peace

Great stuff, have to give this a try, a perspective your not generally going to get, and live to tell the story.

Thanks Rienz.

Sitting watching the goldfinches in August when this little guy that would fit in your cupped hands magically appeared almost at my feet.  Had to carefully twist about 100 degrees without scaring him.  Another reason why I enjoy sitting an letting the birds come to me.  Love being in such situations! :)

Thanks Click but I was just an opportunist!  I don't run into too many animals as I'm too close to populated areas but it's heartwarming to see how many have adapted. 

My problem is keeping the motorized vehicles out of these prohibited areas.  I'm shooting them when I see them and will assemble a pdf including my wildlife shots this season in a effort to get more support from administrators.  I'm thinking of maybe handing out to neighbors something similar showing the variety that I've managed to shoot - might open the eyes of a few - hopefully.
