Hello Anna,
Nice archive image. Quite a young animal depicted. Zebras are beautiful animals and I'm happy each time you I spot them; so thanks for sharing your image!

Hallo Enid,

Fantastic shot! The pose of the buffalo is very nice, and the light was sublime. The focus is on the eyes of the animal, where it should be! Well done.

Hi Paul,

This is a good portrait shot of a beautiful bird. The exposure with the black and white plumage is very good, a very good dynamic range. Well done.

Hi Natley,
Impressive cat you managed to capture here. It seems to be in an excellent condition. It shows almost a sphinx kind of attitude...
Well done and TFS

Hi Manyee,

Long time! This is a really good portrait shot of the eagle. Very good resolution, sharpness and detail. Good focus and DOF. What a pity about the light, but one has to take the picture where you find them, so well done.

Hi Anna,

First of all it's well done as there's an excellent focus and no harsh sunlight. You can view the metallic in its blacks and there are no blown out highlights as well. Great.

Secondly my first thought about this image was: so close. I spotted this bird one or twice in KNP. It was too far away though. I read you coped with that issue in your note very well. I do have to say that Pretoriuskop wasn't on my itinerary though.

I'm visiting the Kruger National Park this year and once again I asked and received interesting tips from Loot. I want to thank you for that. I just started a new blog about KNP http://annickvanderschelden.blogspot.com/. It's called The way to Crooks Corner.

Kind regards and TFS,
Annick

Hello Anna,
Always great to be back in KNP through your images. Of course I know the Blacksmith Lapwing. Especially in terms of photography:-). Concerning the former I could state that the easy part is the focusing as the bird is slightly bigger than some of his feathered counterparts and secondly the plover isn't too shy either which offered me lot of opportunities to get the job done.
The difficulty might be the black versus white areas resulting in respectively clipped blacks or blown highlights. 04:27 and some clouds might be helpful in order to achieve the right dynamic range:-).
Thanks for sharing this wonderful plover as well as bringing me back into this wilderness.
