Snapshot Serengeti Gallery
« on: January 12, 2013, 03:45:04 pm »
I thought it would be nice for fellow Serengeti fans to share some of our favourite meetings ;D

Sometimes our friends get a bit too close to the camera for me to be able to tell who they are. Fortunately, these folks are always a bit obvious :D


A Thomson's gazelle - they have such fine flashes of black on their sides.


Sadly this was just a one-off night shot and I never saw this fine leopard's face!


Sometimes I favourite an image for the view alone . . .


Where's Fluffy? :D


I've seen this place several times and it's always busy ;D


Why hello!


Best to stay out of his way I think . . .


There is a classification for this, too. (Actually quite a few of the cameras are at a 45 degree angle and need putting upright . . .)


And good afternoon to you too my friend.


I do believe I have encountered a baby gazelle! :-*


Not a tall story at all - I am just on my way.


Hartebeests are one of Tsering's favourites. They have very recognisable horns!


Shots like these are my pride and joy . . .


. . . this of course being a very special delight! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


And my favourite meetings of all have been this . . .


. . . And this. 8)

Oh wow. I haven't found any cheetahs, servals or hyenas yet! And I love the Moon picture! 8)

Has anyone read The Wilderness Family by Kobie Krűger? She was a game ranger's wife for 17 years in Kruger Park, South Africa - they met a lot of these animals there! ;D

Tsering's favourite Hartebeest - it's got some little growths on its flank that make it distinguishable. The same one has turned up more than 10 times now. It seems rather attached to the camera!

An artistic shot - this plant is trying to capture the only cloud in the sky:
