Chasing warthogs (April 2009)

Lake Nakuru is an excellent place to spot flamingos and rhinos. Capturing them together in one picture is sheer luck.

Trees and shrubs in Masai Mara form the perfect cover for leopards, only for the very keen eye to discover. Makes you wonder just how many leopards you might have passed unnoticed!

Giraffes are extremely vulnerable once they lie down. That is why it is rare to catch them while resting. Even this giraffe’s mate in the background seems to be surprised.

Another unusual encounter, also in Mara. A pride of lions decides to put a whole warthog family on their menu. Unlike their normal behaviour, when they hunt as a group, this time each lion chases its own prey. And all succeed.
