I missed your cats EML. :-* Speaking of big teeth, you are missing crocodiles in Australia? ???

It's true, problem of course they're generally so far in the North, around what we call "The Top End", Darwin etc, heading that way on a road trip with the Family in September.

But I did deal with a couple of real estate lawyers recently in Aus, so that almost counts, they have certain "crocodilian" features.

Nice to see you posting Gary, lovely portraits.

One of mine, to each his own I guess, I find my subject matter less troublesome than perhaps your own.

1Dx 400f/2.8 + 1.4x, shot @ f/4 & 1/320th ISO 320

Timbavati South Africa

Stunning shot, Edward!

Stunning shot, Edward!

Appreciated Expatinasia, to be fair though, these Animals not only make it easy, they make it a pleasure, especially Lions, they tend to lay about for 16 to 18 hours a day, so all we need to do is find them in the early morning light or at sunset. Then sit & wait until one of them get's enough energy to look up.

In this Image some fill flash helped with the bright Golden light of an early morning Sunrise showing behind the Animal.

We had gone to Timbavati again in the hopes of White Lions in the Wild, one of the very few places outside a Zoo that these very special Lions can be seen and Photographed, but I'm batting zero after two trips of 10 Days each, maybe next time.

You are way too modest! You still have to fly to the right country, have the right gear, get a good guide and find the animals you want to shoot - at the time you hope to shoot them, put up with the flies, and then, after all that, hope that you do not get eaten by one! Pretty impressive, but I can see why it must be very addictive to be out in the wild like that.

Don't give up on those white lions, hopefully you will capture one on your next trip. What an adventure though.

One thing I would love to capture on film - or at the very least to see - would be buffaloes being taken by leaping crocodiles as they cross the river bed. To watch that stampede of life and death must be quite something.

Cheers, and thanks for sharing.

Nice, these with the Canon 8-15 zoom, or the 15mm f/2.8 fisheye?
