Magnificent Kalahari Lion with Murder on his Mind. I came across this lion in pursuit of a female and her cub from another pride. I can only imagine the worse but I hope that they managed to escape.

When you are alone and in the presence of a Kalahari black mane lion, a primeval fear takes a hold of you. Even though you tell yourself "you'r safe" you can not totally shake this feeling. It's there lodged in the back of your mind.
This majestic animal once was the bane of a forefathers who lived on this land. They created kraals around there dwellings to keep there families and livestock safe .
When you are a few meters from this killing machine and hispredatorily eyes lock with yours ,you will be chilled to the bone.

Cheetah Mother & Cub | Wildlife Photography Prints
Cheetah mother and cub sit under the shade of thorn tree. They are observing springbok in the distance. To me it look like an impossible task. So much open ground to cover. My eyes could not believe the speed and the amount of ground covered in such a sprint. The Cheetah caught its prey. The cub joined it soon after for a feast.

An Impressive Tawny Lion looking for Trouble.
This territorial male notice a rival pride in the distance. Without a second thought he pursued and confronted them even though he was out numbered. His bravery paid off and the rivals were left licking their wounds.

Night Stalker | Leopard | African Wildlife | Fine Art Prints
It is not often that we get the opportunity to observe a territorial male leopard at close quarters at night. Normally I do not enjoy night time photography as I dislike the effect of flash on my images. I am also aware of the debate regarding the use of flash on animals. So most of the time my camera remains on my lap and I just sit and listen to sounds of the bush in the dark.
On this particular evening, we came across a territorial male with a female who was vying for his attention. As he seemed very relaxed with us, our guide suggested the use of a diffused spotlight shone to the side of the leopard for a few seconds. I really like the effect of the light and shadows it created - a menacing look that chilled to the bone.
Elusive Leopard | African Wildlife | Fine Art Prints
Early one morning while photographing a troop of baboons on a cliff rock face . The alpha male started to bark an alarm. I knew immediately a leopard was close by. I decided to try and find and photograph this elusive predator. As the habitat was koppies and thick bush. I headed offmore in hope than certainty. After a short time I got a glimpse of the leopard. I decided to preempt it and took up a position about 1km away .After about 10 minsthis magnificent leopard walked into view. The light was perfect so was the winter colours of the bush . I resisted the urge of a close up as I wanted to show the secretive side of the leopard as it moved through its habitat . The eye contact before it melted in to its environs really added to this special sighting.
