[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My last photo was placed about two weeks ago but since then I've been exceptionally busy and have had quite a tough time. Our eldest daughter got married at Tshukudu Walk with the Wild near Hoedspruit. It was a beautiful wedding in the bush as she always wanted next to one of the many waterholes. The Saturday before the wedding we all went for an afternoon drive and sundowners when we came across this beautiful male lion and 4 females where they were feasting on a small giraffe with its mother close by watching. How sad but it's just part of nature. At one time this beautiful male started roaring and it was absolutely stunning. I have many more shots and will be posting them in the next few days.
Hope you enjoy this one as much as I did when I took it.
This past week I've also taken Marius for his second angiogram in six weeks and I must say he gave me quite a scare. His heart is not beating right at the moment and he has to take a lot of medication to get it right again.(I think it's all the nurses..hahahaha)
I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate Anna and Loot with their lovely baby grand daughter. At the moment the baby is not so well so please pray for her and keep her in your thoughts.

Hi Natley.
A beautiful animal well captured for all of us to enjoy.Good composition and pose. Nice and sharp with good detail. Maybe adjust exposure just a tad darker in PS and add a little more contrast.

Well done and TFS

Natley, I always enjoy seeing your work. There are no such criters roaming around my neck of the woods. I enjoyed your comments as well.


There is rare tension in the air Natley!! Grrr... nice shot my dear! And lets add congratulations for the wedding of the eldest daughter! I am sure it was a beautiful wedding in the bush! Many can only dream for this!
Lets, all pray for the baby of Anna and Loot!
Best Regards,
George Veltchev

Great shot, Natley! Seems like it was a hot day!
Are you going to share some of the wedding pics online? Would love to see them.

Welcome back!

Bonjour Natley,
Bien que le sujet paraisse exténué c'est une belle publication dans laquelle le lion est bien mis en valeur dans son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
