The beautiful common fig tree. We are in Letaba camp with all it beautiful trees. Yesterday we saw two lioness on a giraffe kill. Last night we heard hyenas whopping around camp so today we will have to see if the hyenas stole the kill but who knows! #letaba #krugerthroughmyeyes #krugernationalparksouthafrica #krugerpark #kruger #lovenature #naturephotography #trees #instagram #naturelovers #naturelovers #nature_good #wildlife #happyplace
My first attempt at panning. Although it is not correct it signifies growth and perseverance for me. A willingness to learn is important in my world. It is indicative of a curious mindset. Here is to the challenge of mastering my craft!
They soar the high skies glancing miles of land for life to run out of its inhabitants. The perfect clean up machines that ensure that the wilderness remains at the best of its health, they possess some of the strongest acids to digest the most rotten carrion which most animals refuse to touch. With an ability to strip a carcass in just a few hours, they are the perfect divers of death that can sense a dead animal from a mind boggling distance. Almost the perfect inspiration of social networking, which is a testimony to the fact that it only just takes minutes for hundreds of them to swarm a carcass, they can gobble up to a kilogram of meat at a time. Being one of the most social of all the raptors, they live in groups called a committee, a venue or a volt and their bodies are perfectly engineered to get the job done. Their bare heads and necks make sure, none of the bacteria or other parasites can burrow into their feathers to cause infections. And yet today a large number of their population is being wiped out every passing year making the environment susceptible to contagious diseases by undisposed meat. Once again, just like majority of the species, their healthy survival is a key to ours!!!

My happy place, Africa! #krugerthroughmyeyes #southafrica #lionking
Did you know that Hyena’s are highly intelligent? Studies have demonstrated they have better problem solving and social cooperation than chimpanzees. They are also cunning hunters, not just the scavengers they are portrayed to be. They’re also a HUGE favourite of mine
Having a soft heart in a cruel world is courage not weakness
Esse é a Freirinha-bronzeada (Lonchura cucullata), espécie discreta que aparece sempre em casais. —————————————————— This is the Bronze Mannikin (Lonchura cucullata), a discreet species that appears in couples, most part. #skukuza #krugerpark #krugernationalpark #krugerthroughmyeyes #skukuzacamp #skukuzabirds #krugerbirds #birdwatching #africanphotography
Whiskers and Lashes! I couldn't tell you how many thousands of kilometres of dusty roads we travelled searching for leopards before we got our first sighting. But the old adage that you see one and your second is just round the next corner was not far off. Once we broke our duck, sure enough the sightings and photos soon followed.  This one was particularly special. Firstly we were so far from the action, at the back of a long traffic jam there was almost no hope of a decent photo. But the good fortune gods were smiling on us that day and after a while we managed to squeeze forward and shoot this shot from between two vehicles. The early backlight sun perfectly highlighting its whiskers and lashes as it looked up the tree where it had stashed an impala. Two seconds later it was gone, up into the foliage, and a minute after that I was also gone leaving the idiots who were blocking the road to fight it out😎 #safari #leopard #krugernationalpark #krugerpark #moon_bestanimals #featured_wildlife #animal_captures #africanimals #world_bestanimals #destination_wild #wildlifeplanet #premierwildlife #earthfocus #animal_elite #krugerthroughmyeyes #satara #canonaustralia #grikart_macro #bigfive #world_bestanimal
The Lappet-faced vulture is the most powerful of its species, known for using its hooked beak to easily rip apart any carcass.
Leopard cub keeping a close eye on me before crossing the road to where its mother is waiting with an impala carcass🐆🐆 . . . . She was a bit camera shy at first but later warmed up more🐆🐆 Adult leopards are solitary animals. Each adult leopard has its own territory where it lives and, although they often share parts of it, they try to avoid one another . . . . . #bestplaceonearth #krugersafari #krugernationalpark #krugerexplorer #krugerpark #kruger #krugerthroughmyeyes #krugerthroughmylense #photosafari #safari #wildeyesa #bigcats #leopard #leopardcub #africanbigcats #wildlifephotography #africanwildlife #wildlifeof_sa #africanwildlifephotography #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_vision #animal_captures #shots_of_animals #bbcearth #featured_wildlife #wildlifeplanet #natgeosafari #joysafaribay #africawildlife #catsofinstagram @kruger_wildlife @krugerexplorer @krugernationalpark @wildlifeofafrica @earth.offline @earthoffline.wildlife @earthoffline.africa @featured_wildlife
Just another impala...... this is my favorite antelope and one of the most successful animals despite being on the menu for many predators. They are so well adapted to their environment which makes the impala the perfect antelope. #impala #antelope #southafrica #africa #kruger #krugerpark #krugerthroughmyeyes #krugerexplorer #capturethewild #canon #canonphotography #sigma #shots_of_animals #shotoftheday #travel #travelphotography #wild #nature #naturephotography #wildnfree #wilderness #africananimals #natgeoyourshot #bbcearth #natgeo #wildlife
The sable antelope is through my eyes the king of the antelopes. Her beautiful body proportions and color shades make her so unique. Especially the males are overwhelming with their large antlers. On this photo you see a mother walking around with her calf. It struck me that the mothers kept their calf as close as possible to reduce any danger. Conclusion: a royal and threatened antelope, which must be respected. #stoppoaching #sableantelope #motherandcalf #southafrica #krugerthroughmyeyes #antelope #safari #nikonbelgium #nikonnl #nikon #wildlifephotographer #wildanimals #mammal #wildlife #wildlifephotography #krugernationalpark #nikonphotography #capturedinafrica #bbcearth #dream #Excellent_Nature #nature_of_our_world #naturebrilliance #WildlifeonEarth
One of three big males in a bachelor group. These eyes have seen some serious shit judging by the scars! I’m proud of this shot turning out. Shot handheld before sunrise with heavy 600mm lens while he was on the move. Oh and did I say they were close? It was shot at 150mm . . . . #lionking #lions #lionsmane #krugerpark #krugernationalpark #krugerexplorer #krugerthroughmyeyes #krugerthroughmylense #greaterkruger #latestkruger #amazingafrica #africansafari #africanwildlife #southafricathroughmyeyes #southafricawildlife #satara #satara_ig #wildlifeaddicts #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_perfection #wildlifephotography #canon7d #canonaustralia #canonphotography #canonsouthafrica #sigma #sigma600mm #sigmaphoto
During our most recent KNP trip, on the very same day that we arrived, my husband and I were greeted by this little beauty, quietly resting on the rocks with his sister . We hung out with the cubs for about half an hour before another vehicle joined us on the sighting . So special ☺️ #paintinginspiration #leopardcub #travelafrica #leopard #wild #wildlife #wilderness #justchillin ##ontherocks #africancats #bigcats #knp #kruger #adventure #spots #travel #catsofinstagram #safari #gamereserve #bushveld #africananimals #africanwildlife #nature #natureconservation #peaceful #free #krugerthroughmyeyes #big5 #thoseeyes
