Hi Kerry.
I love your pics, really good shots. Just like to ask, are they cropped or were you that close? If you really were that close perhaps that is why the lioness is licking her lips. Mmmmm.... I see lunch!  ;D

Cheers Graham.

I think one of my favourites, we had planned this shot the day before, the Male Leopard was mating so we knew he would be in the area late at night, not hunting, moving slowly as his work was cut out for him mating about every 5 minutes (tough guys these male Leopards), light was from another vehicle placed with it's headlights on the Animal.

We were able to set up quite close to the Animal without spooking it, allowing a series of Images, of which I think this was the best.

I know this is not "mamiya rumours", still... a yearly dog portrait is here. Portra 160 was the film used.

Love the Porcupine shot Don. Great capture.

Graham, very small crop but we were very close, lions did not seem to care and just went about their business. Have to sat at times could have done with a bit more reach and 400mm would have been perfect. Could have attached 1.4 extender if need be.
