Got you! / A successful attack by the little cub of Gemsbokvlakte.  The lioness was amazingly patient with her cub and his relentless pouncing and attempts to play, never once swatting or snarling at him - really special to see!

Bee-eater /  A swallow tailed bee-eater around the edge of the Etosha Pan.  As the name suggests, they are particularly fond of eating bees, but any flying insect needs to watch out for this bird.  If they catch a stinging insect, they will carefully remove the stinger by hitting the insect against a branch before eating it!

Dolomite sunset / I think the most spectacular sunsets in Etosha were watched from the balcony of the Dolomite camp.  Up on a mountain, looking down on the plains, it was easy to spot the silhouettes of animals in the sunlit dust.  Just amazing!

Big yawn / Cheetahs have smaller heads and jaws than other big cats, so naturally they also have smaller teeth.  Also in this image the non-retractable claws of the cheetah can be seen.  Although not as sharp as the claws of other big cats, the non-retractable claws act as natural 'running spikes' that help the cheetah achieve their amazing bursts of speed.

Be very afraid! / A cheeky little baby ele trying his best to appear intimidating.  The young babies and adolescent elephants are much more interested in the vehicles than the adult elephants are, and so they display and mock charge more often too.  It's just too cute!

Flamingos in a row /  A few flamingos and gulls in the chilly early morning fog at Walvis Bay.  The greater flamingos prefer to eat plankton and tiny crustaceans over algae, making them less pink than the lesser flamingo.  To eat, they stir the sand with their feet, then dip their head in (upside down) and strain the organisms out of the water caught in their beak!

Up close / A portrait of a Selinda lion.  He had killed a zebra and had stashed the carcass under a large bush, so he was busy sleeping off his meal.  He lifted up his head just long enough to get some pictures before flopping back down into what could only be a lion equivalent of a food coma!

Jackal / A black-backed jackal in Etosha.  Jackals are a common sight in this national park and will often be seen hunting doves from the waterhole.  The black-backed jackals are larger than their side-striped cousins, but are often driven out of their territory by the smaller jackal species.

Pouncing lessons / A playful lion cub and his mother at Gemsbokvlakte.  Her body language is quite clear especially with the position of her ears - she knows exactly what's coming, but was so patient with her cub no matter how many times he ambushed her!

Golden hour / Two little zebra foals in some amazing light.  As part of the annual zebra migration through Botswana, these little ones would have been making their way up to Chobe for the first time.  The zebras migrate up to 800km each year, which is a lot of walking for such little legs!

Brotherly love /  Male cheetahs are fairly sociable cats, which is very uncommon in the feline world.  Working together in a coalition, they can bring down larger prey and defend their territory from other cheetah.  The cheetahs of a coalition are most commonly brothers from the same litter, but not always!

Glossy starling / One of the most underrated birds in the bush has to be the glossy starling (aka Cape Starling). They are a common sighting and are  well habituated to people.  Their dark blue/black feathers may seem bland, but a closer look reveals just how shiny and colourful those feathers are - especially in the sun!

Rock agama / A red and blue Namibian rock agama (male) living up to his name and enjoying the 35°C+ heat on a baking hot rock.  For reptiles the sun and heat in Namibia is great, despite this we saw only three different lizard species and no snakes.  No doubt they were around - might have been for the best they didn't come visiting!

Fight me? / Two young giraffes practice their 'necking', which is where rival males slam their heads into their opponent as part of establishing dominance and mating rights.  This was a rather slow and lazy practice - the smaller giraffe wanted to have a mock fight, but the older one wasn't interested.  Eventually they both went on their separate ways, off to find another giraffe to do battle with.

Tiny baby / We came across a large breeding herd of elephants around the Fisher's Pan loop, which included this tiny calf and her mother.  It's always heart racing to be near elephants but with their calves especially, it pays to be cautious and keep the vehicle running.  These elephants were so relaxed though, we may as well have not been there!
